Watching Ice Melt

This animation is about as exciting as it sounds. I took that ice block with the Chambord bottle frozen inside, and let it melt (since I don't have a punchbowl large enough in which to use it as a giant ice cube).

It took all day to melt, and it didn't finish by the time it got dark so I put it in the freezer over night and started again the next day.

Then I spent a million years making this animation in Photoshop. So pretend to enjoy it!

[Just noticed the animated GIF may not work in all browsers. It's really not worth opening a new browser to see.]

KICK ASS! I'v been observing various forms of ice closely for the past year, but this experiment is just remarkable (And I love chambord!!!)
