“On our way to the 66 parallel south — in Antarctica — we discovered a recent iceberg graveyard,” explains French photographer Josselin Cornou.
“A massive part (as large as a U.S. state) of the ice shelf broke down a few years ago due to global warming, displaying a splendid but scary visual
Those icebergs are about 100 feet tall from the sea level, transporting big amount of fresh water, waiting to be dissolved in the ocean.
The scene was magnificent, but also incredibly scary.”
