DWG: This is a dramatic action shot and you definitely understated the title ... I think you should relabel this photo as "HUGE Margerie Calving Hits the Water". If you have an immediate follow-up shot (I expect there was a gigantic splash.) in your photo archives, maybe you could share that also.
LOL I suppose I did. This is one of about 20+ shots of this event. I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time! Thanks for the comment.
Hello DWGPhotos ... I used the following in the Description Section on three of my Pano photos. If you do not approve, I will remove the wording relating to you/your photo ... By the time one hears the crack/boom of breaking and falling ice, the ice has already hit the surface of the inlet. But there had been some smaller ice falls at this spot, and so I had aimed my camera, with a "larger" lens, and just started clicking off shots as soon as I saw movement of the ice. Just lucky. The size of the glacier terminus is huge (thousands of feet), so I estimate this impact to be hundreds of feet. For a capture of a really huge chunk of ice hitting the water, check out DWGPhoto's shot at http://www.panoramio.com/photo/7672902 ... Greetings and regards, elelwal
