Ice Topography

Here is an image that I wasn't too thrilled with when I first made it but the more I look at it, the more I like it.  What you're looking at is a (relatively) flat shelf of ice covering part of the pool at the base of High Falls in Grand Portage State Park.  My rough estimate of the area shown in the photo is maybe 15 feet X 20 feet.  More than anything what this area of ice reminds me of is a topographical map.  The ice was formed by the spray from High Falls as it drifted down to the bottom of the gorge.  The more I stare at it, the more it fascinates me.
