    Winter Icefall Begins Early Melt

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     mediaman was driving in Chaseburg, Wisconsin on Saturday when he saw these ice formations. 'The sun wasn't quite right, so I went back the next morning.' He put on his boots, hiked through a 5-foot stream and shot photos from behind and in front of the formations. As he left, some of them were crashing down around him. He came back with these great photos, but an iReport producer reminded him to stay safe next time.

    Rural Chaseburg, Wisconsin. This photographic sequence was shot of a frozen wall of ice which has begun melting in late February. The water comes from a spring fed stream from some of the bluffs in the region. During a typical Wisconsin winter, there would be more ice and much less melting occurring. According to Johnathan Martin, professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, “temperatures have been probably averaging 5 to 10 degrees above normal from November to the end of January, which is just exceptional.”

    This series of images were shot in front of the icefalls, and from behind them to show the natural beauty of the ice formations, and the surrounding colors. After these were shot, some of the large ice pieces began to shear away from the formations- a fleeting moment digitally captured.
