Castle of Blue Fog -- Iceberg
Limited Edition Print

Limited Edition Nature Art Print (Photography) for sale. Castle of Blue Fog -- Iceberg. Landscape photograph:  Water, Ice, Iceberg, Arctic, Ilulissat, Greenland

Released 2010-11-01

Ilulissat, a town of 4,500 people and 3,500 sled dogs, sits on the western coast of Greenland, about 120 miles (200 km) north of the Arctic Circle. It is aptly named: Ilulissat is Greenlandic for iceberg, and the ice fjord that meets the ocean there is home to the northern hemisphere's most productive glacier, Sermeq Kujalleq. Massive icebergs such as this one calve off the glacier and eventually make their way to the open ocean, where they have posed a significant threat to sailing vessels for centuries. It is thought that the berg that sank the Titanic originated in the Ilulissat Icefjord. Even today, in the fog and half-light of morning or the dark of night and winter, these huge floating obstacles seem to come out of nowhere. Standing on our ship's bow, I found myself marveling at the enormous icy figure materializing out of the slowly dissipating fog, and was enormously grateful for such modern inventions as navigational radar.
