This "Magnificent Iceberg" made me think about global warming in many different and scary ways...

We were between 100 to 200 yards away from this berg when this shot was taken, and we got closer... right up to it - probably about 30 yards for the close-up. It was about 5-stories tall and I can still hear the "woosh-crash" sound of the waves as they broke in the cavity between the berg-bits.

So where exactly was this? It was in the Southern Ocean, just north of the western sector of the Australian Antarctic Territory.
