February thaw

Spring-like conditions are making an appearance this weekend. This is a formation of melting ice under an ice shelf over Tyler Creek in Elgin, Illinois. The surface of the creek froze quickly after storms in December raised the water level. The creek subsided under the sheet of ice, leaving a foot or more of space. This was taken through a hole in the surface of the ice and backlit by the afternoon sun.
