Beautiful Icebergs

March 28th 2011 23:53
An iceberg is a large piece of ice from freshwater that has broken off from a snow-formed glacier or ice shelf and is floating in open water.
Icebergs may be hundreds of thousands of years old

Where a glacier or ice shelf meets the sea, humongous chunks of ice break off from the face of the glacier; this is known as "calving” and this is how many icebergs are "born."

TriggerPit (link on top of page) has many amazing and beautiful iceberg images. Below are a selection.

Perito Moreno Glacier
Perito Moreno is the most beautiful, interesting and, consequently, the most visited glacier in Argentina. Another gorgeous place where icebergs are "born".
