This is a macro shot of the ice on a pond. A two or three inch high ridge of ice had formed on the surface which looked a bit like a kind of sand dune. The ice had started to melt and this combined with wind had smoothed off the edges. The colours come from leaf detritus (seed cases etc) caught in the ice.
