My freezer leaks. Every week or so I take a pitcher off the top shelf of the fridge and it's full of a round block of ice that's dripped from above. As the water freezes slowly, air bubbles escape from it, leaving tiny channels in the otherwise crystal-clear ice. I set the ice in a cobalt blue glass baking dish to take close-up pictures of it. Lighting it properly was hard; I wish I had a diffused light source I could have used from behind. But I like the shots I got.

Wonderful colors and pattern here, but I"m not sure how exactly it relates to the challenge. Is this some kind of microscopic underworld?

Great shot, is it ice with air pockets, or were you able to actually get an action shot of the liquid?
