Flows and splinters

More ice and ice crystals from a recent cold snap:

The crystals cast shadows (just visible) on the water below in the first image. I’ve seen flow lines like those in the second one before, but not with those fine irregular details. The splinters (combs?) in the last one look like they grew from small bars scattered on the ice surface.

    • I haven’t seen those formations before either. I’ve seen crystal splinters in cracks many times. I think a person or dog scattered small bars of ice on the brook surface, a place for the crystals to grow in opposite directions.
