Ice Fracture

Assynt, Scotland

A narrow loch, which had previously been frozen solid, was now beginning to melt with the rise in air temperature.  Pools of meltwater were forming revealing where there were undulations in the ice. The water picked up the reflections of the snow covered hillside on the other side of the loch. As a contrast to the sinuous shapes of these pools, fractures had also formed, punctuating the calmness of the scene.
