These Icebergs May be from the Ice Age

Scattered around this craggy coastline are small mountains of floating white gold, an old and cold treasure to behold. And there were many beholders out yesterday, and no doubt today, and they will be holdin' cameras to capture with cutting edge, digital age technology, ice age beauty. Below are a few more angles of these giant gems taken by this ice-bergeler.

(left) This is just the tip of the iceberg... more to follow.

This is really a small berg bit, but it still looks large next to the boat.

This berg has 50,000 km on it, is 12,000 years old, and is on the cutting edge of iceberg style.

Another angle of the same berg. The ocean heaves created swirlpools between both sides of the ice.

Cape Spear spiced up with a bit of July green.

* Update - Just to let readers know that the above shots were taken with a zoom lens, and the photo was cropped. Do not venture near the edge of cliffs, as it is easy to trip, or wind can cause you to lose your balance and fall.
