Iceberg deterioration

promoted to Valued image set: The deterioration of an iceberg.

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.

    • Pictogram voting comment.svg 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)
