    Not really sure what happened here. I suspect a really sharp drop in temperature overnight and waves repeatedly hitting this fallen branch to build up this ice formation. Whatever caused it, I thought it was pretty interesting especially since it wasn't particularly cold by the time I saw it. Nature is crazy.

    Besides a very cool subject and shot...I found some irony in the fact you had freezing conditions in NJ, while I nearly collapsed Sunday from low 90s temperatures and sweating away in the AZ desert on my MTB. :) We've been having a strange heatwave since Feb.
