Photographs of Antarctica’s Blue Ice at Eye Level by Julieanne Kost

On a recent trip to Antarctica, photographer Julieanne Kost (previously) spent several days weaving in-between icebergs around Black Head, Cuverville Island, and Pleneau Bay, spending her time aboard a zodiac boat in order to experience the beauty of the continent’s blue ice at eye level. Her images showcase the deep gradations of blue peeking out from within the icebergs, wavy impressions in the outer layers revealing dark blue centers.

You can see more of Kost’s photography, including many aerial shots of naturally vibrant landscapes, on her Instagram and Facebook.
