Icebergs in the sea are continuously evolving, almost as if they are alive. One moment they can be static and still only to suddenly split apart or roll over and form a completely new shape. Here I am looking down deep under what was once the lip of the berg that floated on the surface, underneath that lip it eroded away until with a new centre of gravity it rolled exposing this incredible angular composition. 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. The small black dots are small stones and objects that were embedded deep within the ice thousands of years ago.
