Greenlandic Icebergs off Amassalik Island

Here are a few quickly edited shots of the icebergs off the coast of Amassalik Island. It was hard to judge the size of these massive blocks of ice because the boat wouldn't go too near because of safety issues – a section breaking off one of these would seriously damage the boat, or swamp it.  They were mostly the size of a large ocean liner. Four or five stories high and a couple of hundred feet long. Small by some standards I've read about, but nevertheless, very big to us!
