Ypsilanti, MI (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Not sure how it happened, but there was a thin layer of ice - a few inches above the water, in certain areas today. Made for some interesting designs, this one reminded me of a Snow Flake...

Typically, a low area fills with water from a recent rain or melting snow. Temps fall below freezing overnight, and a thin layer of ice forms on the surface. Then the water level drops as some of the water slowly drains away, leaving the ice layer suspended in mid-air because it is supported where it is attached to twigs, tree trunks, etc.

Lovely series, BTW. And I've been enjoying your other winter series very much! Especially the ones of hoarfrost. You have a good eye, and your close-up camera work is excellent. Thanks for sharing the beauty of winter with us city folk, who don't get to see these natural wonders very often!

7/2014: Greetings from Michigan, where we get quite a wide variety of weather changes throughout the four seasons! Originally I found this site, for the weather, and the photos kept drawing my interest! Decided to get my first digital camera in 2010, and have since upgraded to a Nikon P530. Truly an amazing, eye-opening hobby! This is a great community, so many excellent photographers and friends, so little time! I do read and appreciate every comment and email that I receive! I would like to thank everyone who contributes, for all of the great inspiration and feedback! Sometime down the road I would still like to get a DSLR camera, but for now I just I hope to send a small view of life from the Great Lakes State. Home of the University of Michigan Wolverines! Go Blue! -James
