Pleneau Bay Glacier, Antarctica

Light playing off a glacier creates otherworldly hues in Pleneau Bay in Antarctica’s Lemaire Channel. Photographer Eric Meola got this shot as he was in a Zodiac off the cruise ship Ocean Nova in December 2011. “As we floated up to an enormous iceberg, we went a bit too close and made gentle contact,” he says, “just long enough for me to peer at the underside, which was being carved out and sculpted by the sea and waves.”
