Ice Shoves Sunset
A sunset over the ice shoves in Peninsula State Park.
In April of 2014 a 70-mph wind drove a fifteen mile long, six-foot thick sheet of ice into the north shoals of Peninsula State Park, creating fantastic, fifty-foot high mountains of ice slabs.
This photo was recognized by the Hal prize photography category, and looks almost like the southwest desert.
Listen to the sound of the ice crystals tumbling down the sides of the mountains in the video below, which began recording seconds after the photo was taken.
