Thanks for the explanation. Brilliant and creative. I'll use that idea somewhere!

Not a reflection. It was quite simple really. I drilled down through the ice two thirds of the way down and then put the camera down the hole on my mitt so it wouldn't get wet and then used a remote shutter to snap the shot looking up at me. In my other hand is the iPad I was using for the shutter. I poured a water bottle down around the hole to get the ice to look really glassy. I made sure to drill the hole all the way after I was done so nobody would break their ankle in an empty hole. This allows the water to freeze up in a safe manner.
