According to Amazing Planet.com. where you can see many more fascinating pictures of theses frozen air pockets;

Abraham Lake is an artificial lake on North Saskatchewan River in western Alberta, Canada. The lake was created in 1972, with the construction of the Bighorn Dam, and named after Silas Abraham, an inhabitant of the Saskatchewan River valley in the nineteenth century. Abraham Lake is home to a rare phenomenon where bubbles get frozen right underneath its surface. They’re often referred to as ice bubbles or frozen bubbles.

Photographer Fikret Onal explains the phenomenon: “The plants on the lake bed release methane gas and methane gets frozen once coming close enough to much colder lake surface and they keep stacking up below once the weather gets colder and colder during [the] winter season.”

Well, you’ll never see me the surface of this lake or any other where cracking is possible. Unlike me, these brave photographers took some amazing photos. Enjoy them posted on Amazing Planet.com.  Or here,
