Previous pinner: Frozen tsunami wave. Me: According to Snopes, this photo, and many others like it, were taken at the Antarctic base of Dumont D’Urville in 2002. These frozen waves resulted from melting, not from freezing. Melting has produced the downward-pointing spikes that look like a breaking wave; they are simply icicles. Freshly frozen ice, especially ice that has frozen rapidly, is cloudy and opaque.
