Caption: Snowfield. Snow covering a frozen lake and the surrounding mountains. At upper left the ice has been piled up and eroded by the wind. The formation of ice has a beneficial effect on aquatic wildlife during extremely cold weather. Ice is an insulator of heat and is lighter than liquid water. As such it floats on the surface and slows down further losses of heat from the lake. Photographed at Portage Lake in the Chugach State Park, USA.
