- Title: Iceberg
- Nearest Area: Cape Horn (650 miles north)
- Brief Directions: This iceberg was just south of Antarctic Strait at the entry into the Weddell Sea.
- Best Season: Summer
- Description: Icebergs in the Weddell Sea move north on the currents from the ice shelfs along the coast of Antarctica, where huge icebergs break off the ice shelf and begin their movement north. They eventually break apart, but are still huge in size for many years. As they melt and break apart, they will melt into unique shapes. They will turn over when they become unbalanced, exposing parts that have been under water .
- Gear: Nikon D3, 28-70
