The Ice Monster, east Antarctica.

The Ice Monster by Laurent Ballesta, France.
Laurent and his expedition team were working out of the Dumont d’Urville scientific base in east Antarctica.
Ice shelves in the East Antarctic ice sheet are melting faster than scientists assumed.
When Laurent spotted this small iceberg, he saw the chance to show for the first time the underwater part. I
t took three days to check the location, install a grid of lines from the seabed to buoys (so that Laurent could maintain a definite distance) and take the series of pictures to capture the scene.
