Remnants of Winter; Harbingers of Spring 10

Although the temperature in the area never rose above 36 degrees Fahrenheit March 4, the sun was out, dislodging snow and ice from tree branches overhanging the Back Pond.

By the time you see this post, spring may have appeared in full in northeast Ohio, but this blog will linger on the transition from winter for a while longer. While the photographs in the previous eight posts were taken in Oberlin (on March 10), the rest of this series features photos taken in Schoepfle Garden. I always make my way down to the Vermilion River by way of the Back Pond. Here’s how the pond looked March 4.

Ice had formed on the surface of a pond. A polarizing filter was on the camera lens. The download of photographs was more surprising than usual. I wasn’t thinking of interference colors when I took these photographs, but that’s what was going on. The explanation in the link above is a bit thick, but if you’re keen to know more, there’s more information here and here. (Longtime followers of this blog know that the colors of Leptothrix discophora films—which I photograph ad nauseam—are due to the interference phenomenon and may not be surprised that I raise the topic again.) OK, but here’s a new puzzle for me: Why is the ice forming in shards? Does ice always form that way? Mysteries, mysteries.
