I love when ice dams break...the explosive sound they make is incredible coming from nature.

Those are some pretty big ice-cubes.

Thank God they are from another part of the world. Great perspective.

Amazing shots! It's hard for a Southern boy like me to even imagine the force released from the break-up of that amount of ice. There's more ice in one frame than I've seen in my fifty or so years.

A creative and beautiful interpretation of the challenge.
