    Haven't been online in Overclockers for a while thought I'd drop back in :)

    Shot this one in August last year in a Fjord in Greenland.

    Yeah it totally depends on the type of ice and of course the angles of you vs. sun vs. iceberg. But with 22-23hours of sunlight it does give you lots of opportunity.

    To get the good blues you need to be on the right angles :thumbup:

    It was about 3 storeys tall maybe from memory. Over the 2 week period I photographed a lot of icebergs. Some that were magnitudes bigger than this one.

    Some were kilometre long chunks of ice off that had broken off. Some were little growlers only a few metres across and with all sizes in between.

    And the smallest ones get scooped up into the zodiac and taken back to the bar to be crushed for fresh ice for whisky :D
