Penguins and Iceberg

 

Emperor penguins dwarfed by an upturned iceberg,
the penguins are walking on sea-ice where the berg is trapped in the summer months. The different coloured bands of the iceberg come from the time when it was part of a glacier and depend on how much air is trapped in the snow when it fell. The darker regions have the least amount of air and represent warmer temperatures when the snow fell.

The smooth rounded contours show that this is an iceberg that has tipped up at some point showing sea-smoothed ice.
