This is an abstract image of air bubbles and cracks in a thin sheet of ice.

During our recent backpacking trip in the Goat Rocks, there was one night which the temperature dipped below freezing. In the morning, I found this frozen pool of water at the base of one of the melting alpine snowfields. I was originally drawn to the shapes of the bubbles, but as set up the tripod to frame this comp, the cracks in the ice began forming. The bottom of the pool of water was about 10 inches below and also provided some interesting abstract shapes.
