Photographer's Note

This is another version of the iceflakes from yesterday.
In places where the speed of the water is high and parallell to the ice edge the flakes coming with the water will turn to a vertical position before sticking on to the ones already stuck. I took this picture looking straight down into the corner between the damwall and its pier shaped supports. In this place it is allways a whirl of water circling round and round at high speed.
As the weather went colder an icelayer first form with a gap over the fastest running water and later that gap was closed with vertical flakes giving this graphic effect.
It was in a shadowed corner and dusk so I used a fill-in flash just to get some reflection in the ice and then it took quite a bit of levels and contrast to get this result. I turned it B&W because the murky river water has an unpleasant brownish yellow.
