I've seen those pics. very beautiful, but they are not frozen waves. it's actually glacial ice that's been eroded by wind or sun into a wave like shape. the color and clarity of the ice is the give away.
check out "Blue Ice" on wikipedia

"There's always one who has to ruin it"

It's either spectacular and beautiful or it is not. Why can't we accept the beauty of a garden without also having to believe there are fairies at the bottom of it?

Has info on who took the pics and when. Also explains they aren't frozen waves, as an earlier poster already indicated.

Then came the flood and the space-cold water came (locally) pouring down.
