Over 98% of Antarctica is covered in ice. This ice at it thickest reaches 5km in depth & comprises almost 70% of the earths fresh water. The glaciers are giant rivers of ice that flow slowly towards the sea. Once the blocks of ice tumble into the sea, spectacular ice bergs form which provide photographers with exceptional opportunities to catch the unique colours the oxygenated ice produces.
The average altitude of the Continent is 2,300m, which is remarkably high compared to other continents. Due to the unique environment, Antarctica provides spectacular landscapes and is a natural phenomenon.
