13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Iceberg Archway

A huge iceberg and sheets of floating ice near Petermann Island off the Antarctic peninsula. Lack of air in the ice gives the iceberg the beautiful turquoise blue color. The wind and water have eroded the iceberg and carved an archway through it.
