Tunnel of Ice
Here’s one for all the ice lovers. We spend much of our year with water in a solid state. Sometimes we get very interesting shapes, carved by sun, wind, traffic or shaped from molds.
Sliding Water Chunks
This ice is coming out of a pipe, a 4″ tube which had brought water from the upper pond down to the greenhouse level water trough.
Sun Through a Crystal Lense
The high winds created tubes of ice on the inside surface of the aquaduct pipes. The result were pipes plugged at the bottom end which we took out of service. Some were plugged up solid, others partially like this one. We left them up on the shed roof to melt in the sun.
Ice in Perspective
Even if it is cold the sun’s warmth loosens the ice. Then it slowly slides down and out of the tubes to form a pile on the ground. The result were 2′ to 4′ long tubes of ice. Pretty cool!
