Timelapse Captures Ice Sheet Melting on Colorado Reservoir

A videographer captured a thin layer of ice melting away from the surface of Ruedi Reservoir in Colorado, on Wednesday, April 20.

Barry Stevenson filmed an hour-long timelapse that shows the large sheet of ice thawing and breaking away under a blue sky.

Stevenson said the video captured “what the human eye can not see by speeding up the natural melting process”.
