Default What Color Is Ice?

Natural ice on the seawater's surface, that is.

...or not?

For your info. The temperature of the (slushlike) water in between the bits of ice here is minus 1 Centigrade - that is 1 below freezing point. Don't fall in, is all I can say...!

This photo really conveys the feeling of cold to me. We have a group of people who cut a big hole
in the ice on the lake near my place and do what they call a Polar Plunge each February.
I am not one of the participants, to cold for this old man!

Thank you Robert!
I was almost victim of a "in-voluntarily" Polar Plunge, when I shot this above picture. In my eagerness to come as close as possible to the slush-belt between rock and ice, my right foot went in. Luckily it was not so deep where my foot was. The only "damage" was my hurt pride (several bystanders where watching and giggeling when I went in...) and a cold & wet foot in boot.
