How unusual. Why would the shore be frozen?

Haha, I'm not sure if you're serious? But in case you are, it gets cold up here in Canada during the winter, and this is how the lake begins to freeze when the temperature dips well below zero. It starts at the shore because of the shallower water, then works its way outward :)

I was serious. The way the shore froze looked rather odd. With the constant lapping of the tide it wouldn't make sense for the shore to freeze. Sorry about that.

Here's another shot from a different year, in similar cold conditions (around -20 degrees Celcius before wind chill) Maybe the shoreline ice is unique? I assumed it happened from the extreme cold and with the small waves lapping up onto the shore, leaving a thinner layer of water, would freeze almost instantly due to the cold and just continue to build up that way. That's my guess, anyway.

No need to be sorry! It's a lake, not an ocean, so not sure if that would make a difference - a lot less waves. There was snow along the shoreline and this tends to happen when it's suddenly cold. It's always done that on this lake, freeze from the shoreline outward.

Thanks, I appreciate the explanation.

Well, usually the shore of water bodies tends to freeze last. I don't know the exact reason but probably because there is some heat retained in the soil surrounding the water at the shore.

Anyways, great shot! May I ask how many degrees you had there (just roughly)?

Degrees like in temperature? It was -20 degrees Celsius.
This lake always freezes from the shoreline outward in such cold conditions! I didn't realize that it was an oddity?

Oh wow, -20... The last time I experienced that must be years ago. But I guess that's normal for Canada?

I looked it up because I was curious and it seems like I was wrong: The shore freezes first. It's a little bit odd though because what I usually observe during winter is a ring of ice when the first frost hits: The middle of the water body isn't frozen, then there is a ring of ice and then the last few centimeters to the shore are fluid water again. There is a multitude of possible explanations for this swirling in my head right now but no confirmation.

Anyways, I guess the big ice crystals at the shore do make a lot of sense considering the extreme cold, the wind and the thin layers of waters you described above.

We get cold snaps during the winter, an -20 before windchill isn't uncommon during those times!
