icebergs are an amazing phenomenon, each one is unique, each is created over 1,000's of years and begins life after fracturing from its mother glacier in a calving event that can be of cataclysmic proportions.

They come in all shapes and sizes, some as big as small countries that are then broken up by wave action into smaller bergs. Each one is unique and all are doomed from the moment they break away and head out to sea.

As we pass the 1,000's that have made their way into the North Atlantic we have a good opportunity to look closely at them in their various stages of decay and ultimate death.
