This is wonderful. Everyone just thinks that ice is white, but I love all the different shades of blue

Thanks for the compliment. White is in the eye of the beholder. There is so much UV that time of year creating this weird blueness in the scene and I didn't have my filter on the lens I was using at the time so it pushed a little blue. When I returned to station and loaded it I corrected it slightly for what I saw, rather than what is "supposed" to be. So yes, ice, when viewed at that angle can appear bluish. Plus, it's very difficult to expose for super bright ice and dark mountains, so I think this turned out well. Thanks for the fav, too.
