Natural landscapes: encounter with ice bubbles
ICE BUBBLES AT ABRAHAM LAKE, ALBERTA, CANADA
This man-made lake, just outside Banff National Park in the Rocky Mountains, has become famous for cascading ice bubbles caused by methane. This ice is major SLIPPERY; I took a few nasty tumbles while carefully wandering about, hanging onto my tripod to stay upright. Nikon D90, polarizing filter.
