Antarctic Ice Sheets

Antarctica is the largest reservoir of ice on Earth. Antarctica is shaped and defined by the ice that envelops it from the tallest summits to the deepest valleys. Land ice (shown in this fine-art landscape photographic print) first falls as snow, and the ice forms as snow are buried and compressed by layers of snow above. In fact, some of the ice sheets in Antarctica are thousands of years old and hundreds of feet thick.  

In this image, you can see the ice sheet's thickness and compare it to the large mountains in the background. As we approached the ice sheet's edge, a sense of tremendous underlying power emerged. You can see cracks on the surface, and complete chaos of spires and ridges of the water edge cliffs, revealing the pale blue crystalline heart of the ice.
