One of three icebergs as seen early on the first day of spring 20016 by Eric Abbott.

It’s officially spring according to the calendar and the sideways snow in Gander as I write this post. Welcome to Newfoundland!

The two peaked pinnacle iceberg and huge flat tabular iceberg have been hanging out up in Bonavista for two months and now are joined by a third iceberg as proven by the ever smiling Eric Abbott.

Thanks Puffinman for all you contribute to the group. I’ll let your pictures speak for themselves.

By Frank Johnson. Taken in Elliston, Root Cellar Capital of the World.

And these photographers go out in all weather and stand there until they get the shot. Thank you all!

The inclusion of the boat gives an idea of just how big this berg is. Taken from Cape Bonavista by Jerry Mouland. March 2016.

Jeanene Walsh caught a small calving as ice fell off the right hand side of this berg on March 1, 2016. Still huge, it has been grounded in the Bonavista and Elliston area for over 6 weeks!

Sometimes objects in the foreground help with perspective but E. Denise Mouland found a great day to play with this berg. Iceberg finding and photographing is fun! 

With bergs still hanging out in Bonavista and Maberly we might manage a few more posts before they move off land. Stay tuned or check out facebook page for current posts.
