Yes, I know.  It’s a cheesy title. But it does look like it was dipped.

In reality the ice accumulated on the stick from spray and splash in front of the dam waterfall at Harvard Pond.

    Fascinating formation, Steve. It reminds me of some of the cave photos I have seen of stalactites.

    The clarity of your ice never fails to impress me. It especially shines in this image. I never would have thought of fondue, that’s for sure. I see a frozen version of growth scooped out of the pond with a stick.

    • Sometimes the ioce is a bit more cloudy depending on the air in the water. Also the speed of cooling has a lot to do with clarity as well. We had the same vision. I saw this as being pulled from the water but thought of it as food rather than scooped goop.

  5. This formation is absolutely striking! The glass-like effect actually reminds me more of a chandelier than cheese, but I can see your perspective!

    For me, your fondue analogy hit the best target. It’s our tradition to do a whole family cheese fondue to celebrate each New Year, and your nearly-monochrome icy relative made my mouth, um, water.
