The Tips of The Icebergs
When discussing icebergs, a picture is worth a thousand words, so this post will focus on a few of the photos I've taken of icebergs in the Arctic and Antarctic oceans. See what happens when ice, seawater, and wind interact. In short - The artist in this exhibition: Mother Nature! All photos taken from my kayak.
You may recall what you learned: all you see is the top one-third of the iceberg. These things can be huge. At the very bottom photo, you can see an iceberg-and-tent joint campsite. That will help you get the scale...

Yes, icebergs can ignite one's imagination, can't they? They can also be powerful, or just beautiful. Look:
Yes, that's a kayak under that bridge!
And finally - the campsite, where icebergs rest at low tide. Ever felt your tent is really small?
