Nice Ice Baby
Click for bigger.
A friend of mine is an academic, specialising in cold things (glaciers, tundra, kind of thing - can't be too specific as he's quite important) and occasionally gets bizarre letters from members of the public asking questions about various topics that he is supposed - at least in the popular mind - to know about. Recently, he received a letter from a gentleman in India, enclosing a photograph (above), and asking what could possibly have caused these amazing ice formations.
My friend thinks he has a clue, but I wondered what you thought.
