THE RIVER AYR ICE BREAK UP DECEMBER 2010
The above video was taken in Sorn on 10th December 2010. The River Ayr was awesome to see, with the ice flow during the break up of the first freeze up. The second ice sheets broke up on the morning of 28th December in the early hours, and thus was not filmed sadly. Last winters break up also took place at night, and only very limited movies could be taken, see 2009/10 page.
The video format is divx .avi, and will play in VLC player amongst others.
Did anyone catch the ice pack below going through Auld Ayr when it broke up???
This was the River Ayr in Sorn on 10th December 2010, at 2.30 in the afternoon. The first two photos were taken around 1425 in the afternoon. After hearing a loud rumbling sound upstream about 1430, and running down to the rivers edge, a sudden ice mass was seen. Unfortunately the cameras had only just been put back indoors to try and heat them up a bit / dry off, so the initial surge although witnessed, was not captured on film sadly. Anyway, incredible as it is, the first two images were taken within about five minutes of the rest!!!
