Frozen Waves

Imagine surfing through the ocean waves when the water suddenly freezes. It will surely freak the hell out of you. The truth is, it doesn’t happen in real life. It’s not like any magical spell of Elsa in the movie “Frozen”.

The huge frozen waves first captured in Antarctica were created when ice was compressed and the trapped air bubbles were squeezed out. The blue colour results from melting and re-freezing, which forces out trapped air and allows the blue in the visible light spectrum to pass through while the red is absorbed.

Going to Antarctica may be one crazy idea but who knows, you may get a chance to see these strangely impressive frozen waves.
