Want to See an Iceberg From Top to Bottom?

EVER SEE AN ICEBERG FROM TOP TO BOTTOM?

This is awesome! This came from a Rig Manager for Global Marine Drilling in St. Johns, Newfoundland. They actually have to divert the path of these things away from the rig by towing them with ships! In this particular case the water was calm, &the sun was almost directly overhead so that the diver was able to get into the water and click this pic. Clear water huh? They estimated the weight at 300,000,000 tons. And now we know why they say one picture is worth 1000 words...

And now we also know why the Titanic sank!

That is an incredible picture... and all of the blues are gorgeous!
If anyone can stand the cold , it's really worth it to take a trip to Alaska and go on a glacier cruise. They are amazing to see calfing (when pieces break off naturally) close-up.

WOW! That's beautiful.

I've always wanted to take a cruise to Alaska. My husband wants to go to the Carribean so, we haven't done the cruise thing yet.

Maybe one day!

We all so know where the saying, "just the tip of the ice berg" came from. Very cool pic.

My understanding has been (from school days - long time ago) that only 1/10th of the iceberg actually shows on the surface and the rest is underwater.

have you noticed it looks like a dog with a hat?

this is a fake picture the top is real, teh bottom is an inverted ice formation.

but, it does represent the truth about icebergs and how they're disproportionatly small above water.

I learned about that in school Yosemite. Actually I remember it in 4th grade learing about the titanic and then again in 7th grade science. We did this thing growing ice crystals and everything.

If I turn my head to the left, it's a guy with his tongue out swallowing something. To the right it's a snake swallowing something... Gee... think I'm hungry?
