    That's clearly a giant blue raspberry jell-o mold

    Gigantic waves in motion wouldn't just freeze like that unless they were some place much colder than Antarctica

    Looks like the edge of an ice cap.

    Then this wave must have been a disguised troll.

    Great pics though.

    They're known as Frozen Antarctic Kinetic Energy or F.A.K.Es for short. lol

    A cubic meter of sea water weighs in at about a ton times that by the hight and width of a tidal wave and the fact they can move at hundreds of mile an hour, you would need a temperature in the - hundreds region, like -270 degree C to begin to freeze that vast amount of energetic water mid flow.

    It's can't be done captain, there just isn't enough Dilithium left!

    That is so neat, no matter what they might be.

    Those are cool pics. It's too bad that "ecotourism" might be the undoing of Antarctica though.
