Trapped Bubbles by porbital Trapped Bubbles by porbital
Taken at Abraham Lake. Unusual ice bubble were formed by methane gas coming from the lake bed. There was not many snow cover because a strong wind gust (60km/hr) blown away all snow. This unusual condition allow us to see the magic underneath the ice. Combining the strong wind and the extremely cold temperature in canada, this place is definitely not easy to shoot.

I stared at this photo for a long time before I felt comfortable writeing anything, there is so muchof wonder here. To say this is a beautiful capture would be a gross understatement.

Several noteworthy items come immediatly to mind, the first being the red glow on the ice which exceeds the amount of red in the sky itself. I assume the camera was low to the ice to maximize the reflection angle. This also creates along with the white shapes in the ice, a second cloud scape for the colors which don't exist in the sky. My second note is a facination with the various bubble shapes within the ice. The contrast between the clear ice and the white, lets the imagination roam.
This photo is also set off by its lack of symetry. Because all the elements are unique to themselves, they also combine to form a whole which is greater tham the sum of its parts. A job well done, and worth the difficulty you had in taking the shot.
