In the nearly nine years we’ve been here, I’ve never seen the Mur freeze right across. Then a couple of days ago, we had -16 overnight. And ten minutes after I came home from photographing the ice across the road, it went right across. The water is still going under, but what a sight. I’ve been doing a timelapse shoot. It’s getting warmer -well relativley this weekend, so I guess it’ll melt.
Its a result of the extremely dry late autumn and winter which has the river incredibly low. Don’t think it’ll be like the year they had to dynamite it to get the river to flood though!
