Icebergs surround Antarctica.
Icebergs form when tidewater glaciers or ice shelves calve. They can range in size from small enough to fit into a gin and tonic to massive floating behemoths that take decades to melt; 90% of an iceberg's mass is underwater, with only a small portion visible above the water's surface.
Snow and ice in Antarctica's polar regions captivate me. Icebergs come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The massive iceberg in this photograph: it's the length of several football fields and as tall as an apartment building. It appears to be a giant skateboard ramp.
