Frozen Wavelets

Frozen lake in the Rocky Mountains.

Photographer Eric Gross captured these surreal alpine landscapes in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. Although the lake’s surface appears to have frozen waves, the prevailing theory is that these mounds and divots occur when snowdrifts form atop the lake, melt and refreeze. Over multiple melting and freezing cycles, the lake builds up with what appear to be wind-driven waves frozen in time. (Image credit: E. Gross; via Colossal)
