Picture of Ice UFOs

Picture of Ice UFOs
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera on June 22nd 2007. Click image for larger view.

Walking the shoreline I stumbled upon this amazing collection of ice ufos.
I think the tide made them. When the tide is out water freeze in small ponds and when the tide come back in it lifts the ice from the ponds.
Or it might be aliens..
Who knows?

In this photography you can see the island Senja. It is the second largest island in Norway with it’s 1586,3 km².

In the horizon you can see some fata morgana. Fata morgana is an optical phenomenon which results from a temperature inversion. Objects on the horizon, such as islands, cliffs, ships or icebergs, appear elongated and elevated, like “fairy tale castles”.
