We were planning for a shot like this even before the trip to East-Greenand started. We wanted to show an iceberg above and below the surface. The conditions were a little bit more difficult then we thought, as the melting water of the icebergs provide a very murky visibility in the first meter in the water. Also, it wasn't easy to find the right iceberg that fit completely into the frame while not being to far away from it. After several tries, I got this shot.
