This blue gem is located in south-central Oregon. The incredible blue color comes from it’s nearly pure water absorbing every other wavelength of light.

Snow at -25°F
Icy waters can be mesmerizing. The mystery of what lies beneath the frozen surface intrigues. The new surface to explore beckons us to test its strength. The patterns created by its formation and movement are breathtakingly beautiful.
This is a shot of frozen Lake Michigan from 2014, during a colder than average winter. I waited on the end of a pier in St Joseph, Michigan for the sun to set and light up some of the jagged ice below. It was one of those things that photos just can’t do justice, but I still got a shot!
The sun peeks out from behind a snow dusted Gunsight Mountain, illuminating the half frozen lake below. North Powder, Oregon
