An Iceberg Graveyard

Today's ice photo is from the iceberg graveyard in Pleneau Bay, Antarctica - a place where icebergs have run aground and are slowly melting. It is almost impossible to take a bad photo here!

According to the National Snow and Ice Data Center, "Icebergs form when chunks of ice calve, or break off, from glaciers, ice shelves, or a larger iceberg. Icebergs travel with ocean currents, sometimes smashing up against the shore or getting caught in shallow waters."
