The icebergs calving off the Greenland icecap are some of the largest I've seen at the moment, quite possibly due to increasing temperatures. Here a traditional Schooner sails behind the arch for scale. There was some academic debate about attempting to climb it, but I think the objective danger of such a large iceberg is just too high.

Very original shot. A bit special in my opinion, perfect crop too.

Timing is everything or perhaps this was preplanned?

Colours are surreal. I'll be amazed if we don't see this photo going wider than UKC soon .. Images of the day on various digital newspapers etc.
