An Ice Shark, travelling through the ice sheet.

Did you stand that chunk up there?  Wind and waves stand it up before a light snow?  Intriguing picture because of that piece of ice.


Otherwise ... like I feel about most Winter photography ... Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

I'm also intrigued by the concentric lines in the foreground... as if something had been drug, leaving tracks in the snow.  And the base of the ice chunk appears perfectly flat, as if it had been cut with a saw.

Come on Terje... what's the story?

I have no idea why this piece of ice was just standing there, maybe someone has put it there.......it was frozen into the ice and perfect for photographing :-) :-)
