It looks as if two bergs have joined together. It's obvious that the nearest has turned over many times and has melted into smooth curves. The bluer portion is younger, and still maintains a bit of its former rectangular shape. Small bits of ice, bergy bits float.


It took us about 15 minutes to go by this one! At least, I took pictures of it for that long. Actually, this one isn't particularily large. Below: The light colored streak in front of the iceberg gives a hint of what lies below the waterline.
