  1st iceberg sighted in Antartic
by Sharrie

Favorite thing: Icebergs are probably the most common things sighted here in the waters surrounding Antarctica.

I've always been fascinated by these sculpted ice.
They come in all forms & shapes & are the most beautiful objects one will chance on in our lifetime.
To me, they are even more fascinating than whatever wildlife there's out there in the wintery cold.
One has to respect these fragile & yet capable of sinking ships ice!
If you think about it, it's amazing how much power they have!

Fondest memory: Our first sighting of the iceberg is one of the most special moment.
It's afterall the very 1st!
For some, it's their first iceberg in their lifetime.
It wasn't mine, though it's equally impressive.
One of the largest one I've ever seen & got close to.
