A compelling photograph is an insight into the soul of planet Earth, with a power to renew the sense of wonder and intensify the thrill of being alive
Winter ice formations are created each year in Michigan's Upper Peninsula wherever springwater seeps through porous sandstone formations and drips down, forming ice stalactites and stalagmites. Minerals in the water infuse the ice with shades of yellow, green, aquamarine, and blue, and caves behind the ice are formed when the stalactites hang down from an overhang.
I photographed this formation at the Eben Ice Caves, a spectacular seep at the end of a snowy trail in the Hiawatha National Forest. If you visited in summer, all the magic would be gone, but in winter, it is simply spectacular.
