Peculiar Ice Forms

Det har vært noen uendelig kjedelige uker med gråvær, snøvær, regn eller tjukk tåke! Som dere skjønner: Lite med foto-motiver som jeg ikke allerede har fotografert mange ganger tidligere.
Nå ser det imidlertid ut til at vi får et massivt værskifte og jeg har dermed lagt kameraet – eller rettere sagt ‘telefonen’ klar!
Ta bare et titt på disse høyst uvanlige isformasjonene jeg fant på terrassen!

It has been never ending row of weeks with drizzle, fog (or both), snow, rain or even massive fog! As you may understand: Nothing much that was worth shooting that I had not photographed a dozen times before.
Now, however, it is really looking up, and it seems that we will have a massive weather change in the time to come? (About time!) And I have made my camera – or strictly speaking – my phone – on the ready!
Just take a peek at these ice formations from my terrace!
Det startet jo med litt nattesnø, fortsatte med litt regn på morgensiden og deretter 10 kuldegrader utover dagen. Neste natt fallt det såkalt ‘underkjølt regn’ som øyeblikkelig frøs til is i samme sekund det traff bakken og et tykt islag la seg over hele terrassen. Så kom væromslaget igjen og mild luft på 3-4 plussgrader
fikk arbeide fra undersiden av terrassen gjennom hele dagen. Deler av snøen tinte bort fra undersiden, men deler av islaget på toppen ble liggende – bare delvis smeltet!  Her et nærbilde som viser detaljer!

It all started with a sudden drop of about 6 inches of snow! Towards morning it started to rain and gradually the temperature dropped to a minus 10 degrees C!
Next morning we had so called ‘super cooled rain’ that instantly will freeze on contact, and a thick shield of ice was soon covering our terrace!
Then came a weather shift with warmer air (+/- 3 to 4 degrees) which melted  some of the snow at our terrace from underneath , leaving the ice shield to balance in thin air only partly melted! Here a close-up that will let you in on the details.

    I was just thinking of you today as I saw lovely colours on my way to work, as a sunrise. Not as dramatic as yours but good for London. Yes, snow and ice can give some great shots!

  3. The wonders of nature never stop providing these great sites 🙂

    Sure looks pretty standing over it to take a picture! I would suppose it wouldn’t be as enjoyable sitting in it. Ha ha. Wishing you and yours a joyous Christmas season.
