There is a growing icicle coming down from the roof, each day getting a little longer. The melting and refreezing of snow on the roof is creating quite the spire of ice. Since I may have to go take it down, I decided it needed a photo taken first. I would estimate its current length at about 4 feet. It has become a crystalline stalactite.
This is a twilight time picture, but it gives an unusual lighting effect to see the yellow from the incadescent bulb at the bottom gradiating into the bluish hues of the late afternoon sky and the ice itself. Add to it the reflections from the icicle creating patterns of light on the wall, and it gives you an interesting picture.
