Yes, this bothered me! I went through all that trouble to save the Zora and what not and then in the end, nothing, the ice didn't melt, and it said that the evil creature in the Water Temple was the cause of it, so naturally one would think that after its gone that the ice would melt. We come back after all that trouble to see....ice still. We didn't save the Zora (perhaps maybe the King and the shop keeper) its still frozen!
I feel like I did that for nothing, I'd say.
I felt the same way for a long time after completing the Water Temple. I was always like, "Did they forget something here?" But perhaps they were thinking more on their feet than we realized. The creature (or Morpha), was said to be the cause. It probably didn't take much time at all to completely freeze the place, and even if it did, that was a seven year period.
Think about it: If it took seven years to completely freeze Zora's Domain and Jabu Jabu's place, then it wouldn't automatically unfreeze once Morpha was defeated. And even if it didn't take that long, there's really nothing there to unfreeze it. It is obviously going to take a lot longer than Link uses to complete the rest of the dungeons to unfreeze the place. So eventually it gets to that point, we just don't get to see it.
