13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Abraham Lake Morning Glory

Abraham Lake is one of the most Photographed lake in the winter because of the beautiful ice bubbles formed by gas released by dead plant at the bottom of the lake. These frozen bubbles actually exists in many other frozen lakes but mostly covered by deep snow in the winter. Only at Abraham lake, the snow are regularly blown away by high wind which make these beautiful ice bubbles visible.
