The first time you see the blue you simply can’t believe it. You think somebody is pulling my leg. There must be a neon light inside there. After 13 trips to Antarctica I am still in awe with the color and the phenomenon. It’s just so different. The ice is really, hard deep fluorescent turquoise blue. It is so intense that I am able to spot these special icebergs from 3 to 5 miles away. They call my name….
When relatively newer ice is worn away by seawater, summertime melting, or strong winds, the older ice is revealed. And when light hits, it penetrates more deeply. Red and yellow bands of the light spectrum are absorbed, while blue light is reflected, resulting in the glacier’s blue, almost turquoise hue. The glacier calves off large pieces and an iceberg is born.
While I just returned from Antarctica days ago I am already looking forward to my next trip and workshop in 2024. https://www.sethresnick.com/creative-workshops/
