Melting Ice Near Maple Bay

I’ve been driving past this flooded farm regularly for the past few weeks and have been watching the fields become a lake, freeze, receive heavy snow and with our present warm weather, begin to melt. Today the patterns were amazing as the ice began to break up. I’ll be driving by the fields again tomorrow, may have to photograph them again if anything is left.
