Photographer's Note

The extreme inland ice on Greenland daily releases ice into the sea. This fantastic and beautiful iceberg starts its journy south with the ocean currents, from the Icefiord in Disko Bay near Ilulissat in Greenland.

The Icefiord produces at the moment 70km3 ice each year which is approx. the same as 12% of what USA (63 millon tons) uses in one year.

The icebergs can travel for long distanses following the ocean currents. One iceberg observed from this area was located outside the Azores.
