Walking out onto the ice past bergy bits

Back to gallery    Back to thumbnails    Next   Previous

There are lots of different names for different kinds of ice. Large pieces of ice that were once part of an iceberg that broke up are known as "bergy bits" if they are too small to be considered as icebergs themselves. I never did discover when a "bergy bit" was big enough to be a "berg", I think it's a matter of opinion!

These bergy bits are trapped in the frozen sea-ice in the winter making it possible to walk out to them. In the distance can be seen trapped icebergs and the long low landmass of a nearby island, the two peaks to the left are about 40 miles (64 kilometres) way.
