This iceberg in the sea is so blue and seems to glow from within and as such it resembles a cresting wave about to crash but frozen in time. The play of the lip shadow on the water adds to the surreal beauty of water, ice and light combined into natural sculpture formed over time. The small black dots are small stones and objects that were embedded deep within the ice thousands of years ago. When snow falls onto high mountain peaks and over millennia it compresses down and down into deep massive glaciers that slowly grind towards the ocean. At the face of these glaciers massive sections of ice “calve off” in dramatically loud shudders that crash into the sea. The incredible blue is the snow so compressed when it forms into ice that all air has been squeezed out.
