River Wye froze bank to bank in Ross for the first time
in 47 years on Sunday and not wishing to miss the opportunity
to take photos, I walked along the bank from Wilton to take
some photos and to film this extremely rare phenomenon.
In the field as I walked with my friend, Kevin Sale, the
temperature was 10 degrees below zero and we trudged through
6 inches of powder snow.
in the day, the temperature began to rise and the thaw began.
The following morning, one of the strangest river phenomena
that I have seen occurred. By the island at Wilton, a circle
of frozen water caused a 'hole' to form in the river, with
water flowing around it. All of this can be watched fully
in this week's 'Week in Moving Pictures' film above (after
the Christmas Day lunch for the elderly).
