Thayer Brook, Schaghticoke Ridge, Appalachian Trail, Kent, Connecticut.

I’ve had these images on my computer for a while; I got so many interesting images on this trip I had a tough time sorting and editing them. No doubt many reading this know of this problem.

I’ve never seen a collection of geometric ice crystals quite like these, very unusual and amazingly photogenic. I was so excited by seeing these I shot many images of each area just to make sure I got something in focus (ice is sometimes hard to focus on as it’s layered).

It’s amazing how many forms ice crystals can take and I’m delighted when I see things this interesting.

    1. Thanks Dave. No doubt you find plenty of this kind of stuff up where you are. I keep saying I’ll do this but one of these days I want to do a bit more research into the conditions that make these so I can better predict the days/times I’ll find them. One thing’s for sure, extended cold but a bit of melt to get water moving slowly is essential.
