TED talk - Camille Seaman: Haunting photos of polar ice

This informative TED talk was very interesting! Camille, is a photogrpher and has been for many year. She travels around the world and takes pictures of ice burgs in particular. Camille talks about the importance of iceburgs, and how they affect us in nature. She explains how they are frozen for thousands of years, but slowly begin melting. Camille didn't stress the fact that this is a bad transformation, but she lightened the mood per say. She explained that this is a natural phenominon and it was bound to happen, so instead of fearing it, embrace it.

Camille did a wonderful job, providing the viewers with visuals. One of the things i really enjoyed was the video of the iceburg rolling. It was a video, of an iceburg actually rotating in a full circle as part of it's cycle. I was absolutely floored by this! It was so interesting to se such a large mound of ice turn at such a quick speed with such ease. I was impressed to say the least.

This TED talk was interesting to watch, and i wish it was longer! It really explained to the viewers what iceburgs were really all about, how they developped, what they consisted of, etc. Camille was very knowledgable, and enlightened the viewers. I recommned this TED talk, because it was really interesting!
