#26 The White Arcades

These photographs document what is one of the most amazing icebergs I have ever seen, nearby Port Charcot, Antarctica - and I’ve seen quite a few. On approach, it seemed interesting, but nothing could prepare us for the sudden reveal of the incredible sight of an arcade of fluted columns carved out of the interior.  It was difficult to switch from just gazing at it to actually taking some photos. It was an iceberg that deserved a better photographer than me, but I hope I’ve managed to capture something of the atmosphere.

The title of this entry also serves as a tribute to the wonderful composer Harold Budd, who sadly passed away earlier this month.  I actually discovered this after the title came to my mind.
