Dusty ice.....

Headed to Poolburn this morning not expecting to find much as the weather has been warm over the last few days.  Was surprised to see some snow still about in the shadows and more ice in the main bay - especially as it was above zero the whole way up.  Ended up having a fantastic skate around to the back of the main island and into some of the bays.  Ice had a strange surface - dry and what looked like fine dust (but wasn't) and smooth to skate on.
Plan B in case of no ice was to go bike riding - but decided to do this as well and rode to a small dam near by and had a skate.  Also rode the bike on the ice as the surface stayed mostly dry and allowed the wheels to grip - a first for me and good fun.
Headed back via another few spots to check for ice.  Great day.
Brooding sunrise

Plenty of hazards
Surface like fine dust
