I saw more crystallized (if that’s what it is) ice along the Vermilion River March 26. My daughter assures me that this is ice that has partially thawed and then refrozen. She lives on a lake and often has observed this kind of ice along the shore.

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.
