Last week we took care of the plant life under ice, today we enjoy the even more abstract world of ice, rock, and air.

Usually we think of frozen surface water as relatively thin, tw-dimensional layer of homogeneous white ice. Here, the few inches fo water were frozen solid and provided an unusual view into a short-lived world.
