Melting Ice

A nano droplet of liquid water inside crystal ice. Water molecules are eliminated and only the network skeleton is shown. Red fragments are non-crystalline (liquid-like) fragments. Actually, the network is rearranged dynamically in pico seconds.

 

It is an inside view of www.flickr.com/photos/vitroids/1527980322/.

 

The picture is composed with pov-ray from molecular dynamics trajectory of ice melting process.
