The ripples in the water are actually a very thin type of ice called 'grease ice' (because of the sheen it creates on the surface), which is my favorite type of ice. The surface looks like liquid but if you were to drop a penny in it, the ripple effect would be much slower because of the bending ice crystals, and the slow-motion effect is very cool to see first hand.
