FIRST - this is a NATURAL water color. We went "inside" this iceberg - it was something like a bay in a middle part of it. My small zodiac boat came there and I was able to took this picture. Color of water is so blue because there is an ice under the water - it makes blue tone so intensive...
In Antarctic summer, a lot of icebergs are coming to Admiralty Bay. In our bay we have four big penguins rookery, flat iceberg is a perfect place to rest after hunting time in antarctic water...
With Antarctic greetings, Piotr Angiel

Stunning. It would be fantastic without the penquins, but with them...... wonderful.
The blues are simply magical. I also like the unconventional framing..... that huge amount of blue at the bottom works really well. PHIL

One of the best shots I am viewing now.Superb colourtione, nice feeling of the place, great view of including the pengines.
Great great shot.

what can I say - another masterpiece from you. the colour is amazing and shapes of the iceberg - almost hypnotic. I agree with Philip that adding the penquins is what makes this shot really special. I also quite like the composition - placing the water in the foreground emphasises the size of the iceberg and its lake. great shot.

This looks absolutely surreal, so beautiful one would think it belongs in fairytales or films only.
Quite amazing! Congratulations

Amazing. What a thrilling time this must have been for you.
Must bring back phenominal Memories

Awesome picture ! It's very hazardous to climb on icebergs. In Antarctica, the latter can be really enormous ( size of Belgium or Corsica island...).

Hello, this is a spectator view of the Antarctic region. Great POV and DOF. I wondered if it was this blue and your notes seem to confirm this.
