Berg, 2018

I was on an expedition ship aiming to explore the Weddell Sea. As we approached the Antarctic Peninsula icebergs of all shapes and sizes came into view, some of which dwarfed our ship. Bergs are remnants of ice-shelves and glaciers. They add freshwater to the sea thereby influencing ocean currents far away. This particular berg – though not the biggest – had an interesting shape and texture. Holding the camera steady was the challenge!
