Iceberg watching can be extremely fascinating but it is even better when you can sit along the rocks in the fishing village of Twillingate, Newfoundland where the remains of this iceberg decided to beach itself. Snubbed up right against the coastline, this iceberg will stay in Notre Dame Bay in Twillingate until enough of the ice has melted for it to set itself free.With its ice peaks still standing high above the surface of the water, the base covers a lot more area. The blue color seen throughout the iceberg is from the ice being packed tightly together which changes the position of the crystals. Under the surface of the water, the wide base of the iceberg gives off a green coloring.As this woman sits and watches this natural phenomenon, the iceberg will change shape as parts of the iceberg melt and break away. It has been a long journey for this iceberg to make it to this point but Notre Dame Bay in Twillingate, Newfoundland is probably the end of the line for this one.Originally, this iceberg broke off a much larger one so one can understand why these massive pieces of ice are called giants of the waters, especially in Newfoundland.A woman viewing an iceberg beached at Twillingate in Newfoundland, Canada.
