Photographer Ryota Kajita was a pupil on the College of Alaska Fairbanks in 2010 when he started taking photos of ice formations up-close.

Intrigued by Alaskan swamps, ponds, rivers, and lakes, Kajita started to note odd-looking “ice bubbles,” which he says are gases — normally methane — trapped beneath the floor.

“When water freezes,” Kajita says, “it turns into ice slowly from the floor and traps the gases. The bubbles and freezing temperatures create distinctive geometric patterns.”
