Crystal Icicles, Grisons

Before the cold winter is over, some photos of the most crystal clear icicles I’ve seen for a long time have to be posted.

Usually, a lot of air bubbles are visible inside icicles. A certain flow of water and certain temperatures create crystal clear ones. These icicles grew on the shadow side of a small valley, we had incredible blue skies and the sun’s reflections on the yellowish rock on the other side. Beautiful blue and yellow reflections on the ice surface were the welcome result.

Unfortunately, we were about to start a long mountain trip so I had nearly no time to photograph all those beauties. I could have spend hours by photographing them! The result are just fly-by shots, but I hope you can see what I mean by saying “crystal clear”. Hope you like ’em!
