Iceberg and Debris Field - Twillingate
The non-uniform melting of an iceberg can cause a shift in equilibrium making the iceberg very unstable so that it can roll over without any warning. While I was photographing the nearby lighthouse a loud cracking and thunderous bang broke the evening silence but I was too late to photograph the breakup. Seconds earlier this iceberg was a single irregular berg that was now in three pieces surrounded by a debris field.
