However, filmmaker Alex Cornell created a new photo series while on vacation in Antarctica last month, which shows a completely different side literally to these giant blocks of ice.
Icebergs are pretty standard when it comes to appearance: They can be bold and beautiful, sure — but for the most part, they’re white, snowy and generally look the same.
On a National Geographic expedition with his mother and sister, Cornell’s boat encountered an overturned iceberg with amazing coloration in Antarctica’s Cierva Cove.
Snow had recently fallen in the area, so the lack of noticeable snowfall on the iceberg in question means it had recently flipped, according to Cornell. Photographer captures rare, breathtaking images of recently flipped iceberg
