Artist's Description

A huge tabular iceberg protrudes from the sea ice about the height of a 10 story building. There is about 6-7 times as much ice below the surface of the water. Ross Sea, Antarctica.
The light during the day when some cloud is in the sky provides dramatic lighting, reflections and colour on the polinya (open water) and in the sky.
Although Global warming is not having as dramatic effect on the Antarctica as it is on the Arctic, never-the-less there are changes, including bigger and bigger icebergs being carved from the ice shelves and the ice tongues. In these terms, the one above is pretty small.
Canon EOS, zoom lens.
(Featured in The World as we See it, or as we Missed it.)
