50 Shades of Grey... white and blue

Prior to ever wanting to go to Antarctica, the name alone brought up images of stark white vistas, flat snowy plains, and generally cold nothingness. How wrong could I be? Stupendously wrong, in fact. Antarctica is majestic in scale with massive peaks towering out of the water, cloud formations reflecting in water as still as a mirror, snowy glaciers with bright blue veins of ancient ice, and icebergs the size of castles in varying shades of grey, blue, white, and even black. Photos do it little justice, and words even less, but I shall try with the images below.
