    Dear Mr. Mesquita, The Glomar Grand Banks is a Global Marine semisubmersible drilling rig that recently operated offshore St. John's Newfoundland. However, upon further research of the attached picture we have discovered that this "photo" was copyrighted in 1999 by Ralph A Clevenger. Mr. Clevenger, has never been a direct employee of Global Marine. He is a professional nature and underwater photographer who's had work published by the National Geographic, and is on the faculty of the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA http://www.brooks.edu/careers.htm

    Ralph Clevenger's comments on the iceberg image: --------------------------------------- The iceberg image is a digital composite that I designed to illustrate the concept of "what you see is not necessarily what you get". As an underwater photographer I knew that my "vision" of what a big iceberg looks like was impossible to get in reality so I had to create it. The image exists in nature but due to water visibility is not possible to capture on film.

    There are 4 separate images involved; the sky, the background, the top iceberg (shot in Antarctica), and the underwater iceberg (shot above water in Alaska and flipped in the final composite). The image is available for licensing through CORBIS at <www.corbis.com>.

    Ralph Clevenger

    I hope you will pass along this factual information to others so that people will be aware that the email crediting Global Marine is inaccurate. Thank you. Aimee M. Dobbs Communications Specialist Global Marine Inc.

    I receive a picture of an iceberg taken by one rig manager at global Marine. I try to find a site on the web where i could find the name to give credits when using the pic for presentations, but despite have found more than 60 sites with the pic, all of them have the same explanation:

    "This is an amazing shot. This 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! Anyway, in this particular case the water was calm and the sun was almost directly overhead so that the diver was able to get into the water and click this pic. Clear water, no?! They estimated the weight at 300,000,000 tons."

    So, my question is: Do u know who took the picture?

    Tks in advance, best regards,

    Frederico S. B. Mesquita
