Great shot. The lack of sense of scale is disconcerting (in a good way), as is the sea level. On the left it coincides with a pointy protrusion on the iceberg. On the right hand side it appears to have dropped away. Optical illusion time.

I think it's beached, not floating.

Another lovely one, Josh. And I do like the way you are feeding them to us one at a time, several days apart, so that each one gets a serious look.
Great series!

Nice one John.  The berg looks like a newly hatched penguin, which is appropriate for an iceberg, even in the wrong hemisphere!

Super, super, super nice shot. 

Don't take this the wrong way ... I've enjoyed seeing your work in the past, but this is the first image I wanted to put on my wall.

I thought it looked like two penguins, side-by-side, skimming up the beach on their bellies.

Not much to add, a wonderful shot. Reminds me of that song lyric, "Crystal Blue Persuasion".

It looks like a sculpture of a bird or seal or something, and that "something" is looking out of the picture to the right.

Your iceland shots evaporate a sort of perfection and slickness, that I always get the feeling of CGI
and feel reminded of my days (and nights) experimenting with POVRay.

This is not a critique, but a metaphor to point out that special unique style and craft of your images,
which look really marvelous to me.

And now, as a greedy watcher who never gets enough, I want to see this in b/w conversions. Cheesy

I like it too. The contrast/ composition between the fluidity of the sea and the fastness of the "berg" which also happens to be the same sea water is appealing to me. And then of course the colours..
