Large chunks of swirling ice are seen here in Foxe Basin, Nunavut, Canada. Located between Baffin Island and Melville Peninsula, the shallow oceanic basin is blocked by ice for most of the year (this image was captured in July). Foxe Basin supports a high density of bearded seals and the largest walrus herd in Canada. It is also an important summering area for bowhead and beluga whales and narwhal.
