At first glance this crevasse is easily mistaken for a painting. 

The photograph was taken "while guiding hiker's on a rainy summer's day on Godwin Glacier in Chugach National Forest, Alaska.

This Earth Science Picture of the Day (EPOD) was first published May 18, 2013 and then republished on December 18, 2021. 

Information about the crevasse and its blues is found here and includes links on the reflection and absorption of light related links and retreat of Alaska's Columbia Glacier.
