Zephyr Creek last Saturday morning
The temperature overnight had been minus 18° Celsius (0°F) so you can see ice crystals on the ice in the lower right-hand corner. The water here flows fairly fast so the freezing temperatures haven't been low enough for long enough to freeze all the water here.
Not a super-clear photo here of these crystals, some of which are about 2 inches long. I hope you understand why I decided to NOT walk out on the ice to get a closer shot.

Partly frozen---I think at that temp I would be totally frozen. Those Ice crystals are beautiful. Silver stars--(well white anyway).
Neat shots and please don't go out on the almost ice. MB
Our lake is pretty frozen, different that a moving stream! I have a photo of similar crystals, must post it!
The cats helped me take a walk on the ice, just near shore. what fun!
I envy you those "stars" on the water!
Oh EG, I love those ice crystals... They look like God has dropped little stars all over the place. How neat is that!!!!
I absolutely love your second shot! Fantastic!
You got a beautiful shot of the ice crystals-- I'm glad you didn't risk your life to get a better one!
I love the ice stars.
Have a very Merry Christmas.
I think you got a wonderful shot of the ice crystals, and I'm sure glad you didn't walk out on the ice to try and get another one. I like the blue in that first photo as well.
I imagine that soon enough it will be totally frozen. I just love the second photo.
Flows to a quieter tune. Beautiful.
I'm surprised that you got as close as you did. Be careful out there.
(singing) Have yourself a merry little Christmas...
Wow, those crystals fell out of the sky? I've never seen such a thing. The stream is beautiful.
Brrr, I don't like this cold weather. If this continues, it will be frozen over in no time.
Beautiful shot: thanks!
those crystals look so unreal. awesome!
Lovely icy scenery! Never seen anything like those crystals. Like stars on the stream.
wow, the ice crystals are amazing, my first time to see it. they look like star fishes to me.:p
Our creek is very similar. Fast flowing so some is frozen and some is not. What an awesome shot of the crystals!
Have a Merry Christmas EG and all your family.
Cool shot of the crystals. Such a foreign world to me.
