Icebergs can become grounded in shallow coastal water. Sponges are the dominant animal life in these shallow zones. An underwater photography team worked from the US Antarctic Program's base on Ross Island during late spring. Grounded icebergs, frozen waterfalls and sea-ice stalactites form part of an underwater tableau.
