32°F is the temperature where water transforms from a liquid to a solid. The temperature's been hovering around 32°F / 0°C around here all winter, so the St. Lawrence Seaway which is normally covered in ice by now is still wide open between the border of Canada and the USA. All along the shore around the 1000 Islands region, there's a mixture of water and ice since the temperature's just at that magic number where it wants to change from one state (liquid) to another (solid), but the friction caused by the waves gives it just enough heat to not completely solidify.
I always found this phenomenon neat to see and when I was out along the 1000 Islands Parkway I noticed it, so I slid down the icy bank on my butt (not on purpose) for a closer look. While I was down there I figured I might as well do a little filming. So this short film, and a dirty pair of jeans, is what came out of my visit.
Filmed on my Canon XA10 on Feb 14th, 2012.
