Drought and heat consume the snow waters: so doth the grave those which have sinned -Job 24:19 (KJV).
Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it? The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen – Job 38:29 (KJV).
A Photographer Reveals The Spectacular Beauty Of An Iceberg That Flipped Over
“My favorite trips are those that are centered around a beautiful landscape — the more dramatic or unusual the better,” says Alex Cornell, a San Francisco-based designer and musician.
So it’s no surprise that Cornell, along with his mother and sister, traveled to Antarctica in December to take in the glorious views. While on a boat expedition to Antarctica’s Ciera Cove, Cornell got one view he wasn’t expecting.
Cornell says the trip was “filled with magnificent sightings.”
He saw ice, mountains, abandoned research outposts, beautiful open sea, and penguins
And as his ship approached Ciera Cove, a naturalist on board Cornell’s boat began to get excited about what he was seeing.
“At first it looked like rock from far away — black almost, like exposed land. When we got closer and circled it, and the gorgeous jade color was revealed, it was clear what it was,” Cornell says.
What lay before Cornell and the boat was an iceberg that had recently flipped over, revealing the dense blue ice that had been submerged.
“Years of compression gradually make the ice denser over time, forcing out the tiny air pockets between crystals. When glacier ice becomes extremely dense, the ice absorbs a small amount of red light, leaving a bluish tint in the reflected light, which is what we see,” explains the NSIDC.
Icebergs usually flip upside down because of melting visible ice and snow from the heat of the sun, which changes the shape of the iceberg and creates a shift in equilibrium.
It’s not a rare occurrence, but it made for stunning views.

Scriptures about Snow and Ice…..
He giveth snow like wool: he scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes – Psalms 147:16 (KJV)
Fire, and hail; snow, and vapour; stormy wind fulfilling his word -Psalms 148:8 (KJV).
“For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, And do not return there without watering the earth, And making it bear and sprout, And furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater. -Isaiah 55:10 (KJV).
Which are blackish by reason of the ice, and wherein the snow is hid: What time they wax warm, they vanish: when it is hot, they are consumed out of their place – Job 6:16-17 (KJV).
Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail, Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war? Who hath divided a watercourse for the overflowing of waters, or a way for the lightning of thunder;-Job 38:22-28 (KJV).
As the cold of snow in the time of harvest, so is a faithful messenger to them that send him: for he refresheth the soul of his masters -Proverbs 25:13 (KJV).
