ICE FORMS ON THE RIVER WYE AT ROSS...............

Contrary to what I said in the latest blog about not being strong enough to film a 'Moods of the River Wye' this week, on seeing the ice forming on the river via the Wyenot webcams yesterday, the opportunity of going down there with a camera was too great to miss.

Proper ice forming on the river is a very rare event and the last occasion I remember it happening was back during the turn of 1981 into 1982. These scenes and the short film were shot at Wilton. I ran out of energy quickly and could not film as much as I would have liked but the pictures and movie sequence show the gist. As I was also unable to make it to Symonds Yat East, the final scene consists of frames taken from the webcam located at Rose Cottage Symonds yat East.

I shall be back filming the river weekly as soon as possible. In the mean time though, I hope you enjoy watching this short sequence.
