'Ice pancakes' form on River Dee in Aberdeenshire

The River Dee in Aberdeenshire has provided a spectacular winter scene with the formation of hundreds of "ice pancakes".

More commonly seen in the Antarctic, it is thought foam freezes overnight and forms in a circular pattern as the clumps bump against each other.
