Moving on with your education in ice, but I have run out of gold. Today it is silver with oxide stains.
Around the power station it is ice free except for short periods when temperature go below -10 C. But then, when the ice forms in the quite rapidly moving water it is in quite another way than on a calm lake. Around the intake to the power station there can be about 50 m or so of ice that is an aggregate of small ice particles that comes floating on the water and sticks to the other.
The picture shows a phenomena on the edge of that field of ice where the water runs in under the ice at an allmost right angle. Small pieces of ice, in sizes from playing cards up to office papers, and thin as window glass comes floating on the water and are pushed up on the ice edge where they form small piles. And it is all to the sound of snap crackle and pop!
I would have liked a better light on this picture but the way the dam is turned the sun never reaches this spot in this time of the year.
Of course, I was standing on the dam.

Oh - you really had a field day at that river. A lesson in crispness. Incredible. Favourite!
PS: I don't miss the sun, the light is so soft and beautiful.

Fantastique photo 100% naturelle et pourtant si proche d'une construction abstraite
Mr Ebbe semble cet hiver avoir décidé de nous enseigner ou de nous donner à voir le froid de son beau pays
Merci à lui si comme c'est le cas cela nous donne de belles et originales images

Seams like broken glas - very well seen Ebbe- The dark water and soft grey complement each other perfect. Almost like Yeng and Yang

I can't say anything else but: what a marvellous picture! It indeed looks like a shattered window glass. The very deep and dark coloured water forms a beautiful contrast with the light grey and white pieces of ice. An absolute beauty!

Le résultat que vous avez donnez est excellent et je pense que plus l'image est vue de loin plus elle se rapproche d'une poitrine de femme vue sur le coté.
Enfin du moins c'est ma vision de l'œuvre et pas forcement celle de l’artiste
Bon coup d'oeil.

Very crunchy underfoot. Looks so delicate and fragile. Lovely contrast with the water too.

beautiful subject. very artistic result. I like the choice of B&W here. The light is just right, it's a very detailed photo now. Well done!

Strange but very attractive. It is almost a pity to know what it is exactly, imagination is so troubled with your pics ;-)
Great eye, and great shot again Ebbe.

Great shot, Ebbe. Quite unique. I especially like the darker ice at the edge of the water. Thank you for giving us the sound effect too. A good informative note.

If I didn't reat the note and the title (and the artist's name) I'd think these are pieces of a broken glass. Could use some more light, but the contrat is excellent. and so many shapes! well done Ebbe.

Excellent composition. Nice division between tehe black and the white. The patterns are very sharp and the texture...great! Pts. later.

Excellent pic; there seem to be some colour specks in the ice, I can't work out if this is grain/noise or if it is really there.

Amazing unusual shot. The colors here are really good and seem very natural. Your composition is great too, giving us a powerful contrast.
