Ice on the lake

Although the ice on the ground is gone (at least in the valley where KAIRA is), there are still some occasional patches on the hill tops, and certainly the distant mounts remain snow-capped. And the ice on the lake is now starting to break up, although there is still a lot there! These photographs were taken late in the evening of 1st June 2013.

About half-an-hour or so before these photographs were taken, we all went swimming. Yes, it was cold, but the thing that surprised me the most was that the ice chunks are deceptively large, heavy and sharp.
