That iceberg was around 175' high and 600' long. It was stuck in the rocks at the bottom which is 420' deep. The blue line is where a crack had formed and water that either melted or rain water filled up and then froze.

The day we went out to see it was very windy and the waves at times were 3 feet. I had to put my camera on sport mode so I could hang on with one hand!

Wow, what a sight! We took a cruise to Alaska a few years ago and it's amazing how huge the icebergs/glaciers can be.

The locals will boat out to the icebergs and pick up the smaller chunks that break off and put them in their freezer for ice cubes.

I love the darkness of the ocean which indicates its deepness. Great shot and must be great to see in reality.
