...and mid-winter, with all the sheets of ice crashed onto the shore!

Vandertramps,

I found the second shot with the panes of ice very imposing for a boy from the tropics. It's enough to chill me to the bones.

Aloha and thanks for submitting.

WOW! I really like #2. It has a very dramatic feel to it.

I really like that second one. The way the ice sheet has broken up and piled on the shore reminds me of scenes in the Superman movie. Nice job.

Gee number 2 reminds me of behind Pinkington Glass Company when they have an off day. Great shot.

Presumably Pinkingtons specialised in rose-tinted filters, much in demand these days. I have a couple of very big, very cheap clip frames intended for big prints that spontaneously turned into similarly artistic piles of bits when I breathed on them (or something).

We had an educational TV series recently, "Absolute zero", about refrigeration through the ages and they showed wonderful old photos & film of ice cutting in N.America for export all over the world.

Doc.
The second one is really amazing.

As there is no scale, can you tell us what the approximate thickness of the ice sheets.

emre.

Thanks everyone!

Eu, I would say that the ice sheets were about 4-5cm thick.
