Not aware if anybody has posted anything related to this or not , but someone (The wife) I know had it forwarded to me who had it forwarded to her ....... One of those chain mail things that normally do not reveal the source site . So I took a few key words and found a likely source site . In any case I found it to be of interest and beauty and thought that I would post the link here to share .

Oh I'm so glad you posted this.....
I ran across it in an E-mail a while back but couldn't figure out how to move it (having no http or whatever) to post it for everyone to enjoy..
I had even asked Sage about how to move it but all we could come up with was to copy each image one by one.....
It's very interesting

I believe it was very interesting , I find those things that are commonly passed/forwarded through the emails only tell a portion of the story . Taking a few of the key words (in this case it was very easy) I plugged the words that were central to what was of interest STRIPED ICEBERGS into search and that gave me a variety of sites . The one I linked to was one of the better ones although there were others .

I hadn't thought of doing it that way!

Amazing photos you have shared. I searched for others and was not able to find any nearly as spectacular.

I did find a nice companion to the striped iceberg photos. Art Ford Explains Why Icebergs Have Stripes-
