Part of ice magic is the form created by movement when liguid expands into solid. Movement itself is a given. Form is the result of the movement direction as it expands. I call the forms in this photo crinkle, crackle, and sheen. Who knows what mitigating factors (wind, submerged objects?) influenced the expansion, but the result is like etched and polished metal.
