We think that ice is clear, and that icebergs are white, but the colour of the icebergs of Antarctica range from deep blues to teal green.

I am an avid, amateur photographer. I work as a librarian in Toronto, Canada but I spend all my free time (and disposable income) photographing in Canada and around the world. . My love of photography started in my teens when my mother gave me her old Pentax Spotmatic and my parents allowed me to set up a black and white darkroom in the basement where I printed a lot of pretty terrible images. Now I enjoy photographing a variety of subjects - particularly remnants of the past - from old, wooden grain elevators on the Canadian Prairies to Mayan ruins in Mexico.
