July 24, 2007: The first time I saw this iceberg was near Sanderson Hope, south of Upernavik, Greenland
July 27, 2007: The iceberg had calved leaving a hole and a fragile arc.
July 27, 2007: ...and a slightly different angle.
July 31, 2007: The iceberg became visible from Upernavik. The arc had broken apparently releasing sufficient weight for the iceberg to start drifting towards Upernavik.
August 1, 2007: The iceberg appeared in the morning fog stranded in shallow water at the harbour entrance.
August 5, 2007: Stranded at the same location seen from another direction
August 11, 2007: Several minor calvings later at the same location
August 11, 2007: Seen from another angle from a motor boat
August 12, 2007: From another direction.
August 16, 2007: Calving a little
August 16, 2007: later in the evening
August 17, 2007: Big chunks of ice has just fallen off. It is beginning to tilt.
August 19, 2007: The brand new Norwegian Cruise line ship MS Fram on its virgin trip. It has anchored in front of the iceberg shuttling tourists to Upernativ in rubber boats.
August 20, 2007: The police boat Sisak IV passes by the iceberg.
August 21, 2008: The iceberg had now broken in two.
A particular iceberg was photographed at two different locations (where it was stranded) and from several different camera locations during a period of a month in North-West Greenland. This unique image set shows how the initially very large iceberg deteriotes and finally breaks in two by repeated calving and melting.
Support Meets all the criteria. --MichaelMaggs 08:12, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
Support Nice iniative, boat stories are quite distracting from the subject. --Foroa 07:12, 4 June 2008 (UTC)
Comment You may have a point there. Do you recommend that I remove the boat images from the set, or that I clean out the boat stories from the desriptions? One thing I like about the boats is that it relates the iceberg to its surroundings and provides a sense of scale. BTW, have a look at Image:Upernavik first day in class 2007-08-14 2.jpg which also has the iceberg in the background! That one I excluded from the set though as here the iceberg is really a much less prominent feature in the image although it adds to the atmosphere... -- Slaunger 20:20, 4 June 2008 (UTC)
