The flight back to the States from Europe departed during the day and remained daylight for the entire trip. The bluish tint to the images was caused by shooting through the Plexiglas of the airliner's windows.

The ice below was clearly breaking up during the spring thaw. Some scientists estimate that this view will be of clear water sometime in the next twenty years due to climate change.

Imagine being trapped on a floating ice sheet. Would you have the courage to leap from sheet to sheet over a bitter cold sea?

Without context to judge scale, this might be the ice thawing atop your glass of dinner water. Or shaved ice awaiting your immersion in an ice bath to bring down a fever. Or ice on a harmless puddle over which you are about to ride your bicycle on a winter's morning. Context is everything when the view is ambiguous.
