Despite the freezing cold temperatures of 14F degrees yesterday, I decided to check out Graue Mill to see if the Salt Creek River had frozen over there. The river was still flowing, but there was an incredible amount of ice buildup on the branches and rocks that were near the water due to the previous flooding. These ice formations did not have the pointed shape of icicles like on buildings, but rather a noodle-like shape like on a jellyfish. After being outside for about 20 minutes, my tips of my fingers were frozen numb even though i was wearing two layers of gloves. It was time to go back to the car :)

What a strange configuration of ice. I almost said you were lucky to find it, but that would be a mistake. It takes lots of hard work and searching around to find and make a great shot like this. Good work.
