Drift Ice

| 4 Comments

Another day, another trip out of Kawayu. We took the train to Abashiri to have a look at the big chunks of ice that float in across the Okhotsk Sea from Russia.

Fields of ice floating on the sea's surface.

The water is so cold, the waves are viscous and slow.

The thinner ice cracks as the ship passes by but quickly refreezes.

Brrr. Those are some cold photos. I really like the puzzle of ice.

Very nice shots!

I can't take credit. Tod was behind the lens for most of the trip--these and most of the rest are his photos.

Wow, It's nice pictures. You went to Hokkaido!
It's my home town, actually I was raised in Sapporo
but was born in nothing-existed-but-cranes Kushiro.
I don't remember when I went to the last,
it's a long time ago.
Anyway, good for you.
