Icebergs in the Antarctic area sometimes have stripes, formed by layers of snow that react to different conditions.

Blue stripes are often created when a crevice in the ice sheet fills up with meltwater and freezes so quickly that no bubbles form.

When an iceberg falls into the sea, a layer of salty seawater can freeze to the underside. If this is rich in algae, it can form a green stripe.

Brown, black and yellow lines are caused by sediment, picked up when the ice sheet grinds downhill towards the sea.

Here's what I mean...

PRETTY SHARP, I JUST HOPE THEIR OK FOR THE INHABITANTS IN THE OCEAN. I BELIEVE THAT THESE CHUNKS OF FRESH WATER ICE ON WERE PUT ON THIS PLANET HUNDREDS OF YEARS AGO JUST FOR THE PURPOSE FOR DELETING LIFE ON EARTH IF NEED BE. SINCE THIS IS WHATS BEING DONE NOW. STOP AND THINK DINOSAURS HAVE BEEN FOUND ALL OVER THE PLANET INCLUDING IN ICE. SO HOW DID LARGE CHUNKS OF ICE IN VARIOUS PARTS OF THE WORLD AS TO NOT BE TOO MUCH IN ONE SPOT FOR THE ROTATION SO OUR PLANET ROTATES EVENLY. BUT THIS ICE LOOKS PRETTY.

Hmmm... it actually explains why this happens in the description above the pictures. Looks like the Jesus freaks do know how to read anything but the Bible!

"Blue stripes are often created when a crevice in the ice sheet fills up with meltwater and freezes so quickly that no bubbles form."

praise the lord. its a message from god, he walks among us and he will show himself soon enough but for now we will have to be content with his stubtle works of art that only the faithful can see

Ididots who interpret this phenomena as work of creator are plain UNEDUCATED and IGNORANT. Infact so ingnorant that their belief system won't allow them to take 10 sec of their time to research on Google why icebergs produce colorful stripes.

Anyone who instantly interprets anything as "creators work" = stupid and uneducated. Because it only takes you 1 sec to say "it's creators work". But few min to research science behind it. So people take the easy way out and call it "creators work". BULLSHIT. No creator, it's all in your heads.

wow!!!!
its litel scert!

How is this proof that there is a creator!? All of these have a natural reason for forming... all this is proof of is that some people don't bother learning the processes that cause this!

patty lett
and there are people who say their is no creator.

patty lett
how can there be people who say we have no creator!

The last 8 images are from a lake freezing over somewhere in the States (?Great Lakes area?). They are not icebergs from the ocean.

Other than that, great shots!

I think those "frozen wave" pics were from Michigan or somewhere... could be wrong, but that's what I remember from somewhere. Great pics in any event.
