Edge of Blue Ice

This was taken with my first digital camera (Canon EOS Rebel T3) back when I first started roaming the outdoors looking for photos. It was the first time I heard a lot of talk about “blue ice” or at least the first time I’d noticed it myself. It was often way out in the water, and it was my understanding that it was bright blue because of more Oxygen being trapped in it (I’m not sure if that’s true or not.) In any case, I found some that was close to shore and was able to get a close-up shot that I found fascinating. It’s a little abstract this close in. I was tempted to bring up the saturation to try to make it as bright blue as it looks to the naked eye, but that made it seem a bit fake. (I tend not to like to overdue saturation editing.)
