Glacial icebergs. These large icebergs were formed where a glacier meets the ocean. Stresses built up in the ice of the glacier as it starts to float on the water cause it to break into many smaller pieces, forming these bergs. They are characterised by tall peaks, in contrast to the flat bergs which result from the break-up of sea ice. Photographed off Antarctica.
