Ice Time

Similar to the idea of watching paint dry or water boil, I can only assume there’s a similarly common saying about watching ice melt…and so I did.

Weekend activities can’t ALL be winners.  🙂

Here’s a plate of ice shot at 1-minute intervals and played at 10fps (ie. 600x speed).  It was shot at a faster shutter speed to capture the rain as it fell, but unfortunately, the YouTube compression lost a bunch of detail.  Also, the video compression caused the stream to be a bit corrupted for the first 3 seconds.  However, if you can make it through that, you will witness the very magic of thermodynamic phase change.

I also tried out the high-speed continuous mode with an even higher shutter speed to capture the rain fall.  Again, the YouTube compression lost detail and corrupted the first 3 seconds, but you get the idea.
