    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

    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.

On the left is Lake Michigan, on the right is Lake Huron, and across the 5 mile strait is Michigans Upper Peninsula. This point of view just goes on and on. The blues and greens of the lakes go with the vibrant green of the bridge I love. I entered the Epiphanie Camera Bags Picture It photo contest. bit.ly/xN3Pqc
