During my time down at Casey Station in Antarctica this season, i got to go out on a ‘burg cruise’ in the IRB’s. A trip on the boats to drive around some of the giants in the southern ocean. These iceburgs are huge from a distance and massive up close. They are big on top of the water and monsters under the surface. Some are grounded and dont move for years. Others float back and forth daily. Overall it was such a amazing experience i will never forget.
Here are some photos i got from my GoPro camera half underwater trying to show the size of them. The last is from the Canon showing what it looks like on top. Remember 10% on top 90% underneath.
This iceburg in the background is the one we called the ‘Cathedral’ and the one all these underwater shots are of.
This shot was taken a couple of weeks ago. We had a lightning storm pass by on a sunday evening and almost every photog in town would have been out getting some shots. I took 9-10 shots and stacked them to get maximum strikes of lightning in one shot.
