The cold fascination of icicles

Staff photographs

In this season of cold we can look in fascination at the forms moisture takes, from frost on window panes, to Arctic sea smoke, to snow drifts, to icicles. This winter, with its combination of snow and cold, has been unusually conducive to the formation of icicles, regardless of how well buildings are insulated.

What follows is a selection of icicle photographs taken by the Rye Reflections staff.
