I think the ice patterns in the harbour are fascinating. Ice breakers move across the ice to break it up to allow ships to move in and out of the city.

That looks cold!
I spent a few cold hours beside the harbour to take the photos.
Reminds me of frozen lakes in Minnesota! No end to our winter is in sight yet.
It must be difficult to live with extreme cold weather for months on end.
I think the harbour looks beautiful with its crust of ice.
Reminds me to some extent of the country of my birth Holland , but scenes like these, which I love are not seen in Australia. One has to travel to Antartica for that. Kiitos Debra . Isa Ed Bakker
It is not a scene I am likely to see in Brisbane any time soon.
Yes, ice patterns are beautiful whether on sea, on window panes or after an ice storm. I assumed that Finns could skate on a frozen sea – apparently not if ice breakers are in regular use. Is that so?
That ice would be far too rough to skate on, you would need a smooth surface.
O my goodness. It’s so beautiful. Like giant abstract artworks. I never knew…
…and they change constantly.
