There is a quintessential Vermont stream (Folsom Brook) that runs along a friend’s property in the Waitsfield area of Vermont, USA. This is an image that came about as the result of the sighting of some unusual ice formations when he was walking his dog.

These ice formations occurred when the water level changed over time.
