Crashing Down


Watching a glacier calve is the most incredible sight and sound.  It’s an art to position yourself so you can catch a glacier as it calves.  Once you are positioned you need to keep your camera to your eye to make sure you are ready to catch it.  My technique is to get a zodiac in place and pick out the front of a glacier that may calve.  Then holding the camera to your eye sweep left and right until it happens.  If you wait until you hear it is too late.  The noise is like an explosion and the sight is something to behold.  This glacier was in the arctic circle in Svalbard.
