This picture is of ice forming from the shore of Hudson Bay. Out on the bay, may 'pieces' of ice can be seen. These are frequently driven by wind and tides. As the wind blows in from the sea, it blows the ice in with it, which freezes into larger and harder chunks, eventually freezing the much of the surface of the bay. In the distance, a line of dark clouds indicate the presence of ice crystals.
