Frozen Morning

Last weekend I posted a Frozen Heart and this weekend it's the whole morning at the lake that was frozen.

Only a week ago it was cold and snowy, but there was no ice on the water in the reservoir and so I could take a few photos of a young swan that was curiously following me for a while, until the parents came to save it from the dangerous human.

During the past week the temperatures have fallen down far below -10 C (14 F) to even more than -20 C and although the sun was shining sometimes, the temperatures didn't climb much higher than a few degrees over 0C. Yesterday afternoon it was quite warm at about +2 C / 35 F.

So, when I arrived at the reservoir yesterday morning, I saw that the lake was completely frozen. Obviously there were no swans around this time ;)

It was freezing cold at about -15 C and the ice was quite thick so that I could walk on it to take the photos in this post. I didn't want to go far from the lakeside though, because ice is something I don't trust a lot.

I have also taken a couple of photos of small frozen waterfalls and icicles, but I haven't had enough time yet to edit them. Maybe next week will be better.
