Rudyard Lake

Rudyard Lake Ice Patterns
(Panasonic Lumix TZ10)
This is Rudyard Lake taken from the Macclesfield road this morning. I have never seen these bizarre ice patterns on a lake surface before. We have had over a week of night frosts and near zero temperatures. I guess this effect must be due to wind ripples during periods of slight thaw. Very strange!


  1. Ooo...I love Rudyard Lake although I don't often get to visit these days ....how unusual the effect of the ice is.. slighly eerie

  2. The effect of the ice is very special! It is great that you have managed to capture it in a stunning photograph! :)


  3. Thanks, both, for your comments.
