A National Geographic photographer and filmmaker named Alex Cornell has captured a rare image of a flipped iceberg in Antarctica.
The iceberg had flipped shortly before Cornell's boat stumbled upon it, and it shows the deep blues of the glistening iceberg bottom.
"To me, this one looked just as incredible as all of the icebergs," Cornell told Mashable on Saturday. "But the naturalist on board was there to kind of tell us, 'No, this is something different; this is crazy.'"
"Its funny — as a photographer and as a person, there's so much there that's all so alien that it's almost overwhelming," he said. "Once you've seen a few penguins, a few icebergs, these crazy jagged mountains, your mind can only comprehend how incredible one or two things are at a time."
