View Full Version : studies of an iceburg

I am in St. John's Newfoundland for a conference. I heard that there was an iceburg in Qidi Vidi cove so I hiked over to see it. It was so cool. It looked like a giant seamonster to me.

from a distance so you can see the size of it. It looks like it's blocking the entry to the cove:

I really like this set of images. You've managed to capture a lot of detail in the ice. My favourite is the second one ('iceburg 1) - nice composition (the clouds add a lot, I think). For the last shot, it's too bad you couldn't get someone standing on the berg to give it a sense of scale - yeah, right! :laughing:

Very interesting. Using the buildings to gauge the scale of the iceberg, it is massive.

Nice set bambi - I love iceburgs as well. If you are in NFLD for a few more days and want even more more burgs, Twillingate is known for them.

Great set. I see some interesting shapes. This will be nice to play with.

That is so cool Bambi. Glad you got to see it, along with sharing these captures with us. Love the last one with all the elements of contours, textures, and movement. Well executed.

thank you guys.

Too bad you weren't here Doug to go out and give it the scale for me ;)

Really cool set. I love the smooth curves of the ice.

Like shot 3...gives a sense of texture in both the ice and the rock behind. :)

What a really "cool" set, Bambi. I'm kinda fond of number 2 as well.
