Hello all!

So I am building a castle/mansion type thing, and I'm wanting to have water running out from under the bridge. Problem is, I'm building in a snowy biome (for the landscape, not the weather, which is turned off) and my water is above ground (66 using Rei's Minimap), and it keeps freezing.

I want to try and avoid using torches if possible, as they won't fit with the design.  I have tried using glowstone as suggested by a friend, but this did nothing.  I have also tried running lava underneath (lava, below marble, below water) but this also does nothing.

Does anyone have any solutions/suggestions?  Would a vulcanite amulet work or does that just affect snow and not ice?

Thanks!

Use light sources other than the sun, such as glowstone, redstone lamps, and torches. The light level needs to be above 11.

glowstone works for me. this is a mad idea but you could try an ender portal. they give off a lot of light. a LOT.

Go at the Block limit and Place a Block Directly Above the Water Source. It's unnoticable.

What about Jack-o-lanterns? or using Redstone Lamps (kinda like glowstones) but u have to turn them on (redstone torch, wire, etc,,).

Thanks!

Unless there is a bunch in a large area (i.e. a lake or similar watery areas), then you get shadows on the ground.

Thanks to everyone for your suggestions.  I've put a lot of glowstone under the water, and also put some lava down (as this fit more than torches).  It seems to be light enough to stop it from freezing.

Many thanks!
