wow...Jessi ...i want to go this place and have full summer spent there..wen i saw the pics i read the full article abt these things ...

"Bottle-green icebergs have often been reported by visitors to Antarctica. The reason for their green colour is still a matter of contention: Early reports attributed the colour to high levels of metallic compounds. Another has attributed the colour to an optical illusion when blue ice is illuminated by a low lying red sun, however, green icebergs stand out among white and blue icebergs under a variety of light conditions. Yet another states that the green colour is due to enriched yellow substances derived from phytoplankton blooms. "


"It doesn't look real, but as far as we can tell, it is. The different layers are formed by algae (green) and sediments (yellow, brown), or by a rapid melting and freezing (dark blue)."

these wer the main 2 articles found...

Forgive my naiveity, but where are those located? Also, the idea for "wordless" Wednesdays is an excellent one!

Jessica said...

Hi Lydia,
Welcome! Come back anytime! I think these ice burgs are in Antarctica.
The idea for Wordless Wednesday is not my idea…I think it originated here
