Antarctica: Icebergs

Antarctica: the unique beauty of icebergs

Nothing could have prepared me for the sheer variety of icebergs that I was to see in Antarctica. Each was a unique moment in time – some would last days, some many years – and all were beautiful in their own right.

Some were the size and shape of department stores while others were grooved and gnarled by water and wind. Some were blinding white while others shimmered turquoise blue in the low sunlight. Some were pulled fast by the current while others seemed suspended in calm waters. Some were translucent as they melted on remote beaches while others were solid and bobbed just off shore. All were majestic and mesmerising.

Here are some photographs that Dave and I took of icebergs around the Antarctic Peninsula.
