Conodoguinet Ice Geometry

    Newer Older

    Best viewed in the large or the original size.

    These odd and wonderful geometric ice patterns were on the Conodoguinet Creek in Camp Hill PA. This isn't a macro shot. These things are quite large - the largest of the "wedge" shapes you see here being maybe eight inches to a foot in length. I've never seen this kind of thing on a creek before.

    Anyone know what conditions produced this particular pattern of ice on a creek's surface?

    Looks kinda like Freddie Kruger's face, in some disturbed way...

      Nice shot.
      Found exactly the same thing in Barrington, IL.
      Still water? Spring fed? -0 to -10deg F? Those were my conditions. Been going there all my life and never saw it before.
