Striped icebergs in Antarctica are bang on nautical trend

AdvertisementBah, humbug! Did Willy Wonka make his way to Antarctica or what? Oyvind Tangen, a Norwegian sailor, was on board a research vessel 1,700 miles south of Cape Town and 660 miles north of the Antarctic a few years back, when he spotted the striped eye-candy floating on the waters.

The stripes are formed naturally over centuries. Nature clearly got the memo about nautical stripes coming back in season.
