Shots of the translucent blue underside of a flipped iceberg (free of snow and debris) taken by photographer Alex Cornell during a recent visit to Antarctica.

Such flips are rare, as up to 90% of the mass of an iceberg lies underwater. According to Science Focus, the events can cause minor tsunamis that have been known to swamp vessels nearby.
