Fluid, frozen, frosty and fractalized. Water is the ultimate winter shape-shifter. WyoFile readers captured its many forms in images submitted to our Cold Snap Challenge.
Sometimes it’s a steely creek burbling past banks freshly piled in snow. Or a river current chugging through crusts that have melted and refrozen.
Sometimes condensation and temperature conspire to create odd sculptures of ice near the water’s surface.
And often it’s snow itself, perfectly crystalized into frozen flakes.
