A Family Portrait

By RobboB  
Icebergs take on a personality based on their shape and context. I guess its a kind of Rorschach ink blot test: You project onto them what you want.This seemed to me to be a family of bergs.

In still conditions, as this was, they can create a fog bank immediately above them as they cool the air. This is shown here. This was taken in 2019 on a trip to Greenland.

The pace at which they are calving from the nearby glacier and then melting is ever increasing. Acting as a clear warning of the climate chaos we are all living through.
