Photo: Grounded Iceberg Southern Labrador

A massive iceberg displaying its beautiful blue coloring has become grounded along the coast of Great Caribou Island in Southern Labrador, Canada.

An iceberg that has traveled many miles since leaving its homeland around the Greenland glaciers is so large that it has become grounded along the coast of Great Caribou Island in Southern Labrador, Canada. The ocean waves make their way around this massive chunk of ice as they flow towards the shoreline of Southern Labrador.

The unique blue coloring that is exhibited by an iceberg is very visible in this picture and is easily photographed after it grounded itself near this island in Southern Labrador. Cracks begin to show up the sides of the iceberg and across the top which is where this iceberg will probably begin to break apart once it slowly thaws.

When most people imagine an iceberg, they picture a large white chunk of ice floating aimlessly throughout the water and nobody really knows that such pretty blue coloring is apparent in icebergs. An iceberg is white when there are tiny air bubbles throughout the ice but when no air bubbles exist, the iceberg displays a beautiful blue tinge throughout it. ... continue below the picture...

If you stop and think at how long this iceberg was attached to a glacier (approximately 10,000 to 15,000 years), until it finally broke free, the thawing process is fairly quick. After this gigantic iceberg grounded itself along Great Caribou Island in Southern Labrador, it will sit here until it thaws enough to slowly break itself free and continue melting for a month or so until nothing is left.

Iceberg grounded along the coast of Great Caribou Island, near St Lewis Inlet, Atlantic Ocean, Southern Labrador, Labrador, Canada. The ice from this iceberg is 10,000 to 15,000 years old and originates from the Greenland Glaciers which calve into the ocean and are then caught in the Labrador currents.
