A rare sighting of a flipped iceberg has shown what really lies beneath the water's surface in Antarctica. In a series of breathtaking images San Francisco photographer Alex Cornell snapped an iceberg that had turned a full 180 degrees to reveal its underside. About 90 per cent of any iceberg lies under the surface of the water and, while iceberg flips are not especially rare, to come across one with shades of such vivid blue is unusual.
