These brilliant blue ice look like frozen huge waves.
They were captured by French astrophysicist (and part-time photographer) Tony Travouillon as he travelled across Antarctica.

How I wish I can be there 🙂
Yesterday a 6.3 magnitude earthquake hit New Zealand.
A 7.1 magnitude earthquake hit Christchurch in September 2010.
So far, 75 people were killed and 300 are still missing.
Lots of people are still trapped inside the damaged buildings.
Some areas are unsafe because there are lots of unstable buildings.
Police warned that the 26-story Hotel Grand Chancellor may collapse.
If that happens, it may cause disaster to the unstable buildings around it.
On Thursday, more foreign rescuers will be helping to dig out the trapped victims.
I am very sad and sorry for the earthquake victims and their families.
I hope that there will be better news tomorrow.
The quake caused ice to break from New Zealand’s biggest glacier and formed huge icebergs in the Tasman Lake.
Glacier Express derailed in the Swiss Alps on Friday, July 23, 2010.
It happened near the town of Fiesch and the mouth of the Aletsch glacier.
The Aletsch glacier is Europe’s largest icemass.
The train was on a journey between Zermatt and St. Moritz.
1 person was killed and 42 people were injured.
Train accident is very rare in Switzerland.
Glacier Express is a very popular tourist train in Switzerland.
It has very big windows so that the passengers can see the beautiful Alps mountains, glaciers, streams and other wonderful things around.
The Glacier Express is known for its majestic mountain climbs.
It is called the “slowest express train in the world”.
It travels at an average speed of 18 mph (30 kph).
This is another disaster.
On Monday a speeding express train collided in India.
