Almost everyone on the Earth knows what an iceberg looks like thanks to the Titanic as well as documentaries outlining the dangers of climate change; yet few have seen a flipped iceberg. Photographer Alex Cornell was lucky enough to spot one on a recent trip to Antartica. Like a glowing chunk of gemstone, the flipped iceberg does not resemble its typical white tip at all.

The deep blues and greens are enchanting, especially with the soft glow of the sun in the backdrop. Although the flipped iceberg Alex Cornell captured was not too dangerous, Neatorama writes, "Such flips are rare and often dangerous, because of the waves they make. Some iceberg flips can even cause tsunamis."
