From Ittoqqortoomiit, we sailed in Scoresby Sund towards our destination for the next day.  We had been scheduled to have a landing near Ittoqqortoomiit at Kap Stewart but this was abandoned due to poor weather.  However, there were plenty of icebergs to observe along the way.  All these images were taken from the ship, rather than from a zodiac.

    Interesting shots, the seemingly blue lines in the icebergs – what are they? Love how you’ve included the birds for scale, it really gives an idea of the immensity of some of these things.

      I think it’s when the berg or the glacier it came from cracks, then the crack fills with rainwater and freezes. The rest of the glacier is generally frozen snow rather than ice. Icebergs can also be more or less blue depending on how far down in the glacier they came from.
