Tidal ice

The Nunns Creek marsh is a tidal wetland, a series of connected pools at low tide, mostly water at high tide. So the ice rises and falls and breaks up over hummocks of grass and shrubs.

Low tide. A branch of the creek, with shaped ice.

The tide rises to the top of the ditch.

In mid-summer, this is dry at low tide.

Ice caught high on the reeds, while the surrounding ice dropped as the tide went out.

And then it snowed. And now it's raining. Ah, BC!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
