Modern Shore: Ice on the Headpond

December 13, 2011

This afternoon, I experienced one of those perfect combinations of light, place, and season. It was mid afternoon where the Mactaquac headpond meets the end of Keswick Ridge, and the dusting of snow had been winnowed across the new ice on the little bay. I only wish that I had taken the time to really explore the light conditions, rather than taking a few quick snaps and jumping back into the car.

Since this is a geological blog, I guess I should also mention that the rocks beneath the higher ground in the distance include Silurian sediments and metasediments, and Devonian granites associated with the Acadian Orogeny …

The shore is marshy on the landward side of the causeway. The dark leads in the ice seemed very dramatic.
