This Frozen Pond Looks Like a Japanese Rock Garden

 

Reddit user odstane recently shared a series of photos of his backyard frozen pond. The frozen water created some interesting patterns drawing comparisons to a Japanese rock garden or the contour lines on a map (used to show elevation).

If any of our knowledgeable readers can explain why this occurs (in simple terms!), let us know in the comments below and we can update the post accordingly!
