Hello Friends,

The following video is breath taking !!


The crew from BBC's 'Frozen Planet' used time-lapse photography to capture what they've dubbed the "icicle of death," documenting its frosty reach as it blankets life on the sea floor under a sheet of ice.



Video Here


The phenomenon is caused when ice from above leaves behind a very salty brine, which gradually sinks as it is more dense that the sea water it encounters.


Absolutely amazing !

Just another example that, sometimes, the best treasures are to be found in our own backyard. The secrets of the sea are still as unknown as the secrets of deep space. Mysterious, deadly and absolutely beautiful !!

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did !!

ETA - Had to relink from Youtube to Yahoo to BBC. Copyrights infringements. Should work now.

BBC seems to have blocked the content from the link or from my comp anyway...

Is there some other way to view? It seems fascinating.
