Natural landscapes: where the bubbles grow
METHANE ICE BUBBLES IN ABRAHAM LAKE, ALBERTA
I went back to 2013 to find this beauty in the archives. The ice on this man-made Canadian Rocky Mountain lake is awash in stacked bubbles caused by methane coming out of the ground.
When conditions are right (little or no snow, consistent frigid temperatures), this is a photographer’s playground. But make sure to wear crampons; the ice is incredibly slippery.
Here’s another take on these remarkable bubbles: https://wp.me/p2ccTX-tY.

Amazing! I have seen some stacked bubbles on a lake, but not that many!
