Yesterday I had posted photos of a fascinating find of many ice circles near the base of a waterfall near Wirral, NB. This post today is a follow up of yesterday's; however, in a sort of way it might be considered its prequel , for today I saw what were the beginnings of more ice circles being formed.
The video below shows the transition that has taken place since I had first found the ice circles.
What I found very interesting is that although a solid sheet of ice had been formed in the area where the ice circles had been previously, some of the circles could still be seen under the ice. (see photo above)
Today a lot of foam had collected near the upper left corner of the newly formed ice sheet and in the following close up views you can see cookie-like circular shapes of accumulated foam which have been formed there.
I was initially disappointed not to have found the ice circles again, but in retrospect, although not as beautiful, these foam cookies were equally as fascinating.
Recipe for Ice Circles
Stir up a batch of foam cookies near a waterfall
then toss into Mother Nature's deep freeze until frozen.
