12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Ice Formation from underneath

Ice formations are usually observed from above. I wanted to show what is under a frozen body of water. The water was so clear that you can see a safety diver at the surface and trees far away in the distance. All the textures such as the dark marks on the ice (air from my breathing apparatus) and the lines from the cracking ice add to the scene.
