According to snopes, these photos have been on the net for some time however the photographer/location is unknown. They are supposed to be un-retouched.

Why mess up a perfectly good urban legend?

Unretouched? One in particular looks like a very crude cut and paste job to me. To me they look like something out of a 1970's global cooling movie where it is so cold that a wave freezes as in the pictures. If real, well, its almost as amazing as the March of the Penguins movie.

It is near impossible to retouch digital photos without trace. Only way to do it is to edit, rephoto, go to conventional/silver/film (camouflage) and back to digital.

Who cares? They probably are from Antarctica.

Interesting, none the less.

These are all best photos of the season. It is so good to see the winter scenes. I did get to see snow this year around thanksgiving but the ice, the angle of the sun, the heavy snow cover is just beautiful. Thanks.

I really wish we could vote twice. Maybe I'll create a new User ID! Wink
I have one favorite for beautiful scenery and another favorite just because it's an awesome picture!
