The Tip of the Iceberg
This image was created by professional photographer Ralph Clevenger. He's been quoted as saying:
Clevenger intended the photo to be a work of art. He never claimed it was an unmanipulated photo. However, it subsequently found its way online where someone appended a caption stating that the photo "came from a Rig Manager for Global Marine Drilling in St. Johns, Newfoundland. They actually have to divert the path of these things away from the rig by towing them with ships!" Global Marine Drilling is a real company, but it had nothing to do with this photo.
