Ancient Giant

from 90.00

Though Newfoundland does not have any glaciers, the location puts it in direct path of the currents carrying these 10,000+ year-old icebergs that have calved off the glaciers of Greenland. Despite online tools allowing people to report sightings, due to currents and wind their exact locations on a given day can be very unpredictable. Sometimes, they’ll get grounded in coves where they can stick around for days. As I headed towards two large reported icebergs, I stumbled upon this one off the coast and tried to find a way to get a better look. It quickly became apparent that this was one of the reported icebergs that had found a way further into the cove.

As the sun peaked through the heavy cloud cover, it created beautiful spots of light on the ice. I would estimate this iceberg to be at least the size of 1 football field - a scale you can’t quite grasp until you see them in person. I very quickly learned to appreciate the uniqueness and difficulty in photographing icebergs - there are so many factors out of your control, but when you do get that magical shot you’re virtually guaranteed to have captured a photo never to be shot again, since they are constantly moving and changing shape. Just like a snowflake, no two icebergs are ever alike!
