Continuing an ice theme. There is one interesting lake in Alberta called Abraham Lake. It is situated in a wind channel Northeast from Sakatchewan River Crossing on Icefields Parkway. Lake is famous for its clear ice with beautiful frozen methane pancake bubbles. Wind keeps the surface of the lake clean of snow comparing to some other lakes in the park that are fully covered through the winter. This trip was both good and bad. It was bad as a warm spell of recent days has fogged up most of the ice on the lake and we didn’t find what we came here for. It was good though as we have found two awesome fellow photographers Bruce & Mike who gave us tips about shooting on the lake and some pointers as to vantage points to be at different times of the day.
And this is what has came out of it.

Bit of an overview. Bubbles are there, but one have to look for them harder than usually.
Here is Nick again challenging the laws of physics.
And learning from the best!
Tip of the day – have your ice cleats when visiting the lake and prepare to be blown away. Literally!
Thanks for watching!
