Feeling the cold already this winter? check out these beautiful, spooky landscapes shot in Ross Sea, a deep bay in the Southern Sea in Antarctica, by Reportage photographer Daniel Beltra.
Crazy, nature-formed abstract ice scultptures in the sea. Brrr.
A strange place, here are a few Ross facts i have discovered;
A 10 metre (32.8 feet) long colossal squid weighing 495 kilograms (1,091 lb) was captured in the Ross Sea on 22 February 2007.
Ross Island was home to Iceberg B15, the world’s largest recorded iceberg, with an area of over 11,000 km², it was larger than the island of Jamaica!
Calved from the Ross Ice Shelf in March 2000, B-15 broke up into several pieces in 2000, 2002 and 2003, the largest of which, B-15A, was the world’s largest free floating object, at 27 x 122 km (17 x 76 miles) with an area of 3,100 km² (1,200 miles²), approximately the size of Luxemberg.
