You will see many icebergs when you visit the Perito Moreno Glazier in the Patagonian region. Very large chunks of ice ( 60 meters pieces ) fall to the lake ( Argentinian Lake ) and they float and drift pushed by the wind.
The ice may have travelled 30 Km ( that is the length of the glazier ) over a period of many years....and eventually, after its release ,it becomes an iceberg which gradually melts away over a period of some months.

Exotic, rugged, remarkable... I cannot believe the beautiful cool colors of the iceberg and water. You've captured a remarkable sight, but are those foliage covered hills in the background?

Amazing icebergs - the colour & the wavy shape of the ice is so beautiful - well done on your interesting notes.

Lep pogled na ledenu gromadu ...
Dobar snimka, lepe boje.
Dobar tekst i kompozicija, lepo pokazano.
Mnogo je brodova potonulo posle sudara sa velikim ledom.
Prijatno vece i sve najbolje za vikend.
Nice view of the ice chunks ...
Good shot, nice colors.
Good content and composition, well demonstrated.
There are many ships sank after a collision with large rocks.
Good evening and all the best for the weekend.

This is an unbelieveable close range picture. Needless to say I never saw such an iceberg.
You show how blue ice get once sunrays lighting it up.
Marvelous achievement, excelent photojob as I recon you taken this from a boat(the waves).
Enjoy a nice friday evening.

Lucky lucky man !
Not quite the Antarctic, but we can get at least some idea ! I saw glacial icebergs in Norway 40 years ago, and would love to see more, and this just whets my appetite !
So much to do, and so little time left !
A marvellous picture, lovely realistic colour and a superb up close and personal kind of view point. Gorgeous !
kind rgds to you and Dawn,

Nice view about ice, good effect with light and this lovely blue color, tfs.

You are really close my friend, real encounter and the blue ice mass is impressive rich in colors. Creative pov, with enough details and textures whie the side sun light draw out a good effect for the whole as well. Excellent clarity and sharpness, and above all I love shades and shadows. I wonder why the color of glacier is blue instead of white? Great photo work, congrats

qué bonito es el color azul celeste del hielo en los icebergs, y qué bien lo has captado en esta espléndida foto.
Me gusta la sencillez y la potencia de la composición, solamente el iceberg, un buen juego de luz y sombras sobre él, y una bella gama de tonalidades azules.
Es un bello trabajo.

Nature's best encounter showing off, shape, transparency, beauty!All greatly captured here with the sun to play the prime role giving light where he is suppose to.A very natural and beautifully icy shot!

What a sensational photo. This is pure joy to look at and so very unique. It's not every day one sees an iceberg in all its glory. The differing shades of blue contribute to the ice cold feel and that sea looks so unwelcoming and dangerous. A magnificent shot dear friend, one to hang on the wall!

Great catch here! I love it!
So interesting and beautiful!
Special regards to the management of (difficult) light, colors, chosen pov and composition!
TFS - congrats,
