Assombrosos Icebergs raiados - Astonishing Streaked Icebergs.

The Icebergs of Antarctica, sometimes display streaks, originated by layers of snow, that react accordingly to different conditions.

Blue streaks are created when a crack in the ice fills up with water, and does not freeze rapidly, and bubbles of air are trapped.

Sometimes, when a iceberg falls in the ocean, a veil of salty water freezes on its bottom. If that veil, happens to be rich with algae, it could display a green shade.

Brown, yellow, and black lines are formed by sediments, when the blade of ice ground the rocks, on its long way down towards the ocean.

The wave was immediately frozen, as it forced its way trough the ice.
Antarctica is amazing.
