During our @kenaifjordstours
we spent about 30 minutes waiting and observing the ice fall into the ocean. There were many small breaks but two major ones in those 30 minutes. This shot is from one of those large calvings.
It's amazing to see how the seals are lying unaffected, even during those large Calvings. These Calvings make thundering-cloud like sound and then the fallen icebergs creates small waves in the ocean.
We eagerly waited with our cameras in hand, ready to shoot a calving, but you can't predict which part will calv, so you need to keep spanning the whole glacier. With lots or effort, I was able to capture the two big Calvings. Sadly couldn't capture a video of the same; but caught a few images in burst mode. SWIPE LEFT 👈 and see the Calving finish slowly.
It was pleasing to see them Live, but concerning too; as it is not good for the environment 😔
