Diving on an ice-berg, what
an ethereal experience! Well, yes it is in an "I've done
that" sort of way, but actually it gets a bit dull beyond the
first five minutes or so when you've taken the pictures of each
The berg is either no threat
to at all - it's sitting there as a massive presence, like an
underwater building, or there are a number of large "bergy bits"
separate, but close and potentially moving. In that case, they
are probably no threat, but you're not sure and you certainly
don't want to get stuck between a couple of pieces of ice that
weigh 1000 tons or more each.
I've also dived on bergs that
are all sort of big crevasses and small caverns underneath which
were dark and spooky and scared me in case I ended up up inside
them and forgot how to get out again - this was probably more
in my mind than reality, but I consider it a survival instinct
worth listening to.
Diving on an ice-berg? do it
once, get the pictures and don't bother again as it's actually
a bit dull.
