Frozen Tsunami wave in Antarctica

At first glance these beautiful images from the Antarctic appear to show waves that have been instantly frozen as they break. Some people have posted the pictures, taken by scientist Tony Travouillon at Dumont D'Urville, with a description claiming they are a tsunami wave which was frozen. But although email chains and internet forums back this claim up, what is really pictured is the natural phenomenon of blue ice
Frozen tidal wave in Antarctica...
Ice Waves: In Antarctica you can find these strange formations that look like giant waves frozen in place. Actually, these beautiful formations are caused by glaciers and earthquakes. Over time, snow compacts into a single frozen mass and the increasing pressure squeezes all of the air out of the ice. Since blue is the only color of the spectrum that air-free ice reflects, that is where the color comes from.
Frozen Tsunami wave in Antarctica? However it was made, it's beautiful!
Frozen Tsunami wave in Antarctica........ I doubt it is a frozen wave......

Tree in Silhouette at Sunset, Lake Maggiore, Italy
The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity... and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself. ~William Blake~ Sunset Tree, Lake Maggiore, Italy photo via carolyn
