Frozen waves

Large blue ice structures in the Antarctic that appear like tall waves that have been instantly frozen as they break. These freezing blue waves were created when ice was compressed and the trapped air bubbles were squeezed out. During the summer the surface ice melts and new ice layers compress on top. The ice appears blue because when light passes through thick ice, blue light is transmitted through while red light is absorbed.
