Glassy and Glorious, an Iceberg Upturned
on 06 March 2018
Rarely do we have an opportunity to see what filmmaker and photographer Alex Cornell captured on his recent excursion to Antarctica: the underbelly of an iceberg, pointing to the sky. Cornell—while exploring the glacial bay Cierva Cove—caught sight of an upturned iceberg. Its surface was glasslike, rather than snow-covered, and water was pouring through it, something he mentions was like observing an ant colony. Head over to Smithsonian Magazine to see more of Cornell's breathtaking imagery of the jewel-like berg.
