"Wrangling" Icebergs and Navigating Among Them

Discussion in 'Transportation' started by bobhoge, Sep 13, 2008.

  1. In Ilulissat, Greenland, on our latest adventure there was a lot of ice in the harbor when the zodiacs brought us in:
    368697995_g9HRh-XL.
    u770SW,S770SW    ---    7mm    f/5.0    1/640s    ISO 80


    Within an hour, the tides and wind brought more ice up to the dock we were using. Our guides got in the zodiacs and used them to move the icebergs out of the way:
    368698091_YJxKA-XL.
    u770SW,S770SW    ---    7mm    f/4.0    1/500s    ISO 80


    The bigger ones took two zodiacs to move:
    368698160_RqG7h-XL.
    u770SW,S770SW    ---    7mm    f/5.0    1/800s    ISO 80


    That made a clear path to the dock, at least for a little while:
    368698337_WbrKb-XL.

    The next problem was to find a way back to our ship:
    368697611_bAYfQ-XL.
    NIKON D300    ---    85mm    f/9.0    1/320s    ISO 200


    A serpentine path found the openings in the ice:
    368697660_hEycf-XL.
    NIKON D300    ---    85mm    f/9.0    1/320s    ISO 200


    All part of the days adventure,
    Bob & Nan
