Ice Patterns Antarctica

Antarctica’s works of art made of ice

Antarctica must be Mother Nature’s playground – her creative side.  I imagine it to be her artist loft as she uses the materials of water, ice, snow, the sun, and wind to make artistic masterpieces that satisfy her left brain.  Her color palette was soothing shades of  vivid royal blue, aqua, turquoise, inky black, or a steely grey.  She utilized the sun and clouds to control the hue, saturation, and vibrancy as if she were conducting an orchestra.  She is an artist.

While cruising around Antarctica I was amazed at the works of art that the sun, calm water, and ice can make.  In fact, if you didn’t know that these were taken in Antarctica you would think are just abstract paintings – each ice pattern different and ever changing.
