YES this is a colour image!
Iceberg under cloud, Kangerdlugssuaq Fjord, East Greenland. Taken from the deck of the Greenpeace ship Arctic Sunrise on 29 August 2009, during an expedition to investigate the effects of climate change in the Arctic.

Btw, the white streaks you can see behind the cloud and the ‘berg are actually streaks of snow on a mountain, on the side of the fjord. The images is not desaturated – I just underexposed the hell out of it.

So, it’s not a monochrome image. In fact, in Lightroom, the only controls I used were exposure, blacks, lights, darks, and shadows. No colour has been removed or added in the picture, I just shot it 1.6 underexposed in blinding daylight.
