Iceberg Phenomenon

Got these pictures from several sources, forwarded e-mails from friends. I just knew that iceberg could be this beautiful. Subhanallah...

Amazing striped icebergs
Icebergs in the Antarctic area sometimes have stripes, formed by layers of snow that react to different conditions.
Blue stripes are often created when a crevice in the ice sheet fills up with meltwater and freezes so quickly that no bubbles form.
When an iceberg falls into the sea, a layer of salty seawater can freeze to the underside. If this is rich in algae, it can form a green stripe.
Brown, black and yellow lines are caused by sediment, picked up when the ice sheet grinds downhill towards the sea.
Antarctica Frozen Wave Pixs - Nature is amazing!
The water froze the instant the wave broke through the ice. That's what it is like in Antarctica where it is the coldest weather in decades. Water freezes the instant it comes in contact with the air. The temperature of the water is already some degrees below freezing.
Just look at how the wave froze in mid-air!!!

And look how actually one whole iceberg look alike. Isn't it just beautiful? Seems so strong and 'proud', and yet beautiful. The beauty of the nature created by the Greatest Creator of all, Allah Subhanahuwata'ala.
