Cruising in front of a glacier is always exciting. Huge glacier fronts, icebergs in front of it, many birds and sometimes some seals. It gets even more spectacular when the glacier calves. The only problem is that it can’t be predicted where and when this happens. This makes it very hard to photograph. Often the first thing you notice is the large bang you hear. Due to the distance you’re often too late to see anything but the large wave it causes. This time I was in time to capture the splash and the fragments of ice shooting away.
It was also interesting that after the splash was gone, all birds in the area (several hundreds) moved towards the that place, probably to feed on the small fish and invertebrates stirred up by the ice.
