A "Bit" of Ice :)

I think if you're missing seeing frozen things then you need to check out the photos on the article over at Sky News. Sorry, I wasn't sure which sub-forum to put this in.

I've not seen ice like that and of course it's the result of the building being covered in water and then frozen, but still amazing to see. Especially the photo of the truck encased in ice.

I think I will save the images as they're like something from a movie.

      I was surprised there was no thread, so here’s one. A thread for all discussion related to the upcoming cold spell.  
      Try to keep things civil and nice please!...
      I bet most folk if not all, never expected for us to be staring down the barrel of a potentially prolonged cold quite wintry pattern. It was only last week when NWP painted a quite sterile picture, with some providing commentary of the fat lady in full voice following the less successful blocking outcome.
      ECM / GFS / UKMO @T72 & 96hrs
      Universal agreement on a ‘very’ cold sourced northerly airstream a stone’s throw away, it’s been a while, however this may be the appetiser to the main event into week 2 - I’ve seen been thrown about. In recent days we’ve seen the models lower the uppers, thus increasing the chance of wintry precipitation to low levels - mid next week. Our mid Atlantic ridge does not look to persist stationary, there is considerable uncertainty as we enter early December, nonetheless there is certainty that it will be cold & blocked. Indications are it will topple but not as we know it, ultimately cutting off the cold flow, however remaining cold to very cold on the surface. Thereafter, these +ve heights could retrogress to the north west with another Arctic blast or northeast with an easterly flow.
      Very interesting times

      Could anyone give beginners tips about taking photos of the Northern Lights. For Scotland or Scandinavia. Without investing huge amounts of money or carrying loads of kit, can decent images be taken by an amateur?

      ADS extent lowest on record by about 196k. The melt is currently 18 days ahead of 2012, and 7 days ahead of last year. Things looking interesting to say the least.

      ​I have to Attach the latest snow/ice map due to somehow unable to paste it
      It seems that Northern Russia seems to be having a bit of a early snowfall.
      Edit: The picture came out well in the end

      I am enrolled at UNIS,Svalbard, studying Arctic glaciers till September. I am hoping to keep this blog updated with details of what I am up to and pictures. So far I am limited to Longyearbyen, having not received gun training, but next week will start with fieldwork. The weather has so far been sunny, and rather warm, reaching a high of 15c yesterday. The constant light is taking some getting use too! I'll be visiting a local glacier on Thursday, where I hope to update!
