Great picture! I have used it to illustrate a news paper article describing our laboratory based research focusing on chemistry in snow (http://webpaper.nzz.ch/2013/03/06/forschung-und-technik/K4GWO/wie-funktioniert-die-chemie-im-schnee).

This morning we discussed the image during coffee break. Do you remember how wide that stream/deep that stream is?
