Early morning surprise! Frost flowers are seen blooming on the sea ice near Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, on Oct. 14. These ice crystal formations are commonly found on sea ice in cold, calm conditions—typically when there’s a temperature difference of at least 15 C between the ice surface and the air. Cambridge Bay's weather has since turned to winter, without the big temperature swings of mid-October. (PHOTO BY JANE GEORGE)
