Do you know how an iceberg looks lile ?

Monday, November 13, 2006

Typically, around 90% of the volume of an iceberg is under water, and that portion's shape can be difficult to surmise from looking at what is visible above the surface. This remarkable photograph is only possible as a result of calm sea conditions, excellent water clarity and a direct exposure to sunlight at the time it was taken. This particular iceberg is estimated to weigh over 300 million tonnes.

Picture is amazing indeed. I have a suggestion for you... install FireFox 2 . It has an integrated spell checker for anything typed ;)

This is a famous photo that is photoshopped from 2 different icebergs that the photographer had previously taken photos of during expeditions.
It would be impossible to take a single photo of an iceberg like that considering lighting, of course.
