A Novel Ice Spike

After my article, I received some interesting pictures of a large ice spike from a retired physicist in the UK, who didn't know about ice spikes previously and was baffled. He says the internal diameter of the bird bath is 33 cm, so the length of the spike is about 16 cm. I haven't seen any that flare out like this at the top.... Wonderful.

I cannot help but say that its a real shame he focussed on the background not the ice :-(
