Description

I was surprised to see ice crystals formed on the Bull Kelp which had washed ashore. It's been so cold, and the kelp was in the shade on the beach. Nothing else had crystals, so I wonder if they were formed from some chemical emitted from the kelp? Once I saw "Silky Hair Ice," which looks like white cotton candy, formed when carbon dioxide made by fungi pushes filaments of ice from logs under certain cold conditions. Here are 5 photos.
