© Victor Liu / 3rd place - Professional category / Underneath a Frozen Lake / Story: There are thousands of lakes like this in Canada in winter, but very few of them are able to show the great "bubbles" like Abraham Lake does. I was fortunate to be at the right place at the right time. These bubbles are just amazing.
