Thic picture was taken at Baltic sea in Miedzyzdroje.
Pan ice is a form of ice that consists of round pieces of ice with diameters ranging from a few inches to many feet, depending on the local conditions that affect ice formation. It may have a thickness of several inches. Pancake ice features elevated rims with a nearly uniform height of a few inches. The rim is formed by piling the frazil ice/slush/etc. up the edges of pancakes when they collide, both due to random bumping into each other and because of periodic compressions at wave troughs. Pancake ice may be formed in two ways. It may be formed on water covered to some degree in slush, shuga or grease ice. Alternatively, it may be created by breaking ice rind, nilas or even gray ice in the agitated conditions.
PL – krążki lodowe to płyty lodu o kształcie przeważnie okrągłym, których średnica wynosi z reguły od 30 cm do nawet 3 m, a ich grubość do 10 cm. Obrzeża krążków są lekko uniesio-ne wskutek ich wzajemnego ocierania. Krążki lodowe stopniowo łączą się tworząc najpierw pola śryżowe, a później pokrywę lodową.

I've never seen this before. I don't think this picture is the most beautifull i've ever seen, but it's a good registration of this phenominom. Thanks!

I am also never seen this before. I like the composition and it is a good documentation of natural phenomenon.
