The Great South Bay started icing over last week for the first time of the season, first on the bayside of Fire Island and then by Sunday morning on both sides of the bay in a few areas. After getting some video of ice sheets pushing up on the beach with the rising tide, I launched my drone for an aerial perspective from the shore of Bellport. The light was a little harsh for nice video but I was able to capture some duck hunters blasting through the ice. Check it out at the 1:25 mark in the video above as the passed Howell’s Point.
