Visiting a Bergy Bit

Visiting a Bergy Bit
During a cruise around tabular icebergs in zodiacs (see note) we found a 'bergy bit', the term for a large portion of broken iceberg - maybe the size of several houses. Smaller portions are called 'growlers'. This bergy bit had a little icy 'bay' and underlying ice shelf, which helped bring out the green colouring.

Truly excellent. It must be a pleasure - and a bit dangerous - getting sooo close.

I think the move only applies to us in England and uk. The message came from Yahoo but only mentioned Flickr specifically.
Thanks, we're ok here as we live very high up. In the summer when butterflies are around I wish we lived in the sheltered nearby valley rather than this cool draughty garden but now it's a great relief we're here. Now the Thames has burst its banks in Berkshire. The situation is so serious with thousands of people flooded and so many water defences broken all around the country.

Thank you very much, everyone, for your kind comments and faves. By way of added background, we actually took the zodiac into the little 'bay' but, although it was a great experience, at that stage everything was too close for a useful photograph. :)

Thank you, Ian. People tend to think the Antarctic is all white, but there is a surprising amount of colour.
