Newfoundland Ice Circle

Ice circle seen on the Exploits River, Newfoundland (Canada), Jan. 24, 2010

These beautiful photos were taken by Rod Baird who kindly allowed us to share them with you here on the River Ice Photo Blog.

For an explanation of what these are and how they form – please see my earlier post on Ice Circles.  Ice experts in Canada affectionately refer to these ice disks as “pizza ice”.
