Ice Bells

Skywatch Friday
Ice Bells

It was a gloriously sunny day today. It was -4 celcius but not a breath of wind and you can actually feel some warmth to the sun. I took Jesse (my brother's dog) and Tucker for a walk around Margaret Bowater Park, and took a couple of Skywatch pictures. The sky was mostly blue with a few fluffy clouds.



I stopped on the bridge over Corner Brook Stream. If that name seems a little redundant its because the community's name is Corner Brook, and the Stream runs through it. I noticed some interesting ice formations on a tree seen here on the left.

So I zoomed in to take a closer look and discovered the prettiest ice bells hanging from the tree. There were a number of stringy branches hanging down, creating a wicking effect and the water and spray had frozen to create these lovely ornaments. Some of them are in the water, but some are hanging above it.
