World’s Most Impressive Ice Formations

Interesting and awesome ice formations sculpted by nature.

Its winter time! Strange and fascinating ice formations are form in winter. Here are some of the most unique ice formations I have found in the internet.

This unique ice formation is named the Blue Ice, an ice formation in the continent of Antarctica. This one resembles an arc formation.

I have always been fascinated with the things associated with ice and snow wince I was young. Because I am from the tropical region, I always wanted to see unique ice formations.

Ice formation can be more impressive when infrared shot is used. The photo above is an infrared shot of a lakeshore ice formation.

The massive pressure created by moving ice can carve some dramatic sculptures. The ice formation above was at Cape Washington in the Ross Sea, Antarctica. Tidal influences and changes in water and wind can crack the ice and sometimes pile it up into large, jagged, peaks. These broken slabs of ice were about 8 to 10 feet tall and the ice was about 12 inches thick. There were scores of similar formations in this area and the way the midnight sun played on the ice was just enchanting to the photographer’s eye.

This is just one of the many strange and fascinating ice formations that are being form during winter. This one looks like a molar to me.

How lovely it is to see a gorgeous ice formation like this while exploring the wonderful world of ice. It will certainly be tons of fun and excitement to see distinct ice formations like this..

This unusual ice formation was under a snow bridge across Sneffels Creek in the Yankee Boy Basin, Colorado and it is called the Ice Bats.

This ice formation in St. Joseph, MI South Pier is certainly one of the most peculiar ice formation I have seen. They appeared like stack of soft white cottons.

Surely, more unique ice formation will be formed again this winter season.
