Pictures of Icebergs from Newfoundland

Newfoundland Iceberg

On my journey heading up to St. Antony’s from Cow’s Head, I had been told that there were plenty of icebergs to be seen and photographed. As I road my motorcycle up to St. Carols I was not disappointed and had to stop several times on the side of the road to take a few . I had to be careful not to ride off the road as I was mesmerized by the beauty of these majestic blocks of ice gently floating in the bays and bights of northern Newfoundland.

One of the best places that I found to take amazing pictures of icebergs was on the cliffs of St. Carols Bay. A steep but short hike takes you high above the icebergs and you can sit there in the grass watching for hours as the icebergs do their dance in the waters below. Slowly they collide with each other, rotating in the currents, sometimes a large block of ice will break off the side of one of these giants and fall into the water with a thunderous crash creating huge waves and ice debris that will fan out around the iceberg.

In this gallery you will find pictures of icebergs that I took in St. Anthony Bay, St. Anthony Bight, St. Carols and Goose Bay. I was lucky to get several shots between rain storms which made for great contrasts between the sky and icebergs.
