Yet more pictures of the pond...

January 2003 brought some of the coldest temperatures in a long time to the Chicago area, and the pond responded by freezing over dramatically. Because I leave the waterfall on year-round to oxygenate the fish, the interaction of water splashing on the rocks with the single-digit temperatures had some interesting results...
