I got hung up here reading about Jim finding your grand uncle. Very interesting. It is a very small world!

Amazing...quite an extraordinary phenomena - beautiful colour contrast with the little red boat! :):)Monika(:(:

I included the little red 'boat' to give an idea of how big the iceberg is, Monika. The Captain had sent the crew to check on the size and when he was told, he turned the ship around - too dangerous to go any further. But the colour blue in the ice is luminous, and I'll never forget the sight. Cheers! Theolfa

Hi, Imre! Glad you visited! Cheers! Theolfa

Greetings Theolfa.

I have just come back from the glaciers and icebergs of NZ, but they aren't as beautifully pristine as this one. I love the luminosity (is that the right word?) of this beauty.

I trust all is well with you, and the spring is on the way.

Warm regards from the south.

Hi, Ian! I have just returned from almost a month in UK & the Galtee mountains in Co. Limerick, Ireland, where my family came from. The 'mountains' are mere hills compared to the Rockies, but more accessible and beautiful in their own way. Luminosity tells me exactly what you mean, but the camera ca't quite capture it. I look forward to checking out your recent additions. Cheers! Theolfa

My Goodness but the boat gives that ICE a perspective. Amazing! Regards Keino

Goodmorning Theolfa. Wowwwwwwwwwwwwwww what a magnificent site you have here.It must have been great to see this iceberg and very cold I guess as well.The chances of me ever seeing one is nil, but only on here. Thankyou very very much for uploading this wonderful photo Theolfa.Best Of and Y*. My Kind Regards to you, from, David

Violet Upton on May 24, 2010

Keino, I apologise for not knowing about your comment. sometimes Pano does not inform me, and it was only because Sugarbag commented that I checked. I deliberately included the red dinghy to emphasize the size of the iceberg, remembering that underneath there is eight times more, and that is why the ship immediately turned around and went back to safer water.

Hi, David! I'm glad you can see N.America vicariously through my gallery, just as I can visit Australia & New Zealand through yours & Ian Stehbans. I don't always comment, but I do always look. Cheers! Theolfa

Hi, Alfred! Sorry to be so late in replying. Thank you for visiting my gallery, and I hope one day you will see Alaska (or British Columbia) and take some pictures, too. Greetings from Saskatchewan! Theolfa
