Ice Jam


We have been having a January thaw for the last week.  I was so surprised to see this gigantic ice jam this week when we drove to town  On the way back home I stopped and took pictures of all of this ice thrown up on the shores of the  Grasse River.  What an incredible sight.


Very extensive ice jam

Wonderful geometric shapes of ice

A panoramic view of the extent of this ice jam



More ice shapes


the jam must have pushed all these pieces up on the shore of the river

Such a beautiful day too

  3. Wow. How could you translate that into your clay, Miss Mary? or better yet your beading? I work alongside a river and get to see some of this in the spring, but this is quite phenomenal! Enjoy the day. Erin

    1. What a great idea Erin. I will have to think about it. I am not very good with Geometry but I love the whites and grays.
      Thanks for stopping.
