Near Kaktovik, Alaska
This is a small pond along the Alaskan Beaufort Sea coast. High winds blew water drops from the not-yet frozen pond which froze upon contact with grasses growing on the edge of the pond. As the wind continued to blow, the ice built up into larger bulb-like designs. As the sun hovered above the horizon just before sunset it backlit the "ice bulbs."
