Next is a panoramic video of the bay taken from near the same spot as above - 26 December 2009.

The following video shows a remarkable scene at Red Wharf Bay, near the same spot as above, on 31 Dec. 2008. After several days of below freezing weather the fast moving tide coming in that morning was carrying large sheets of ice, making an incredible sound as the ice broke up.

The following pictures show the chunks of ice left by previous tides littering the beach. The sheets were often stacked up and were covered by crystals formed by the ice refreezing.
