Chair and frozen canal
Chair and frozen canal
An interesting phenomenon this. I assume that someone threw this chair on to the ice - as it is metal it would otherwise have sunk; so how did it end up partially submerged? It is at the centre of an almost circular patch of darker (presumably thinner) ice, which must be related in some way.
