Discover the magic of Antarctica: Amazing pictures of Antarctic icebergs drifting in the Southern Ocean

These are some pictures I shot during a scientific research expedition in Antarctica back in 2006.

The goal of this mission was to get the first samples from Pine Island Bay area, a remote area almost impossible to reach because of the rapid ice formation.

We were traveling on an icebreaker (RV Polarstern) and were actually lucky not to get stuck in ice as .

We gathered some of the first magnetic, petrographic, seismic and biological and ice drifting data for this area.

Besides science, we also had time to enjoy and discover this wonderful and amazing continent named Antarctica.

In this post, I will only show some pictures of antarctica icebergs. You will see that icebergs differ in form, shape, colors some more beautiful than others.

Icebergs can be so eroded that a little swimming pool forms

Icebergs in Antarctica can also be cracked and looking like a chess board
