Photo by @jenniferhayesig A mushroom shaped iceberg glistens in the sun drenched sea off Ilulissat Western Greenland. The name of the town literally means “iceberg” in Kalaallisut language. The iceberg was born from the Iluussat Icefjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most productive glaciers in the Northern Hemisphere. Greenland’s icecap contains 10% of the worlds freshwater supply and it melting at unprecedented pace. Icebergs are temporary sculptures in the sea. I photographed this formation last week and as I swam away to photograph a tabular berg the mushroom shaped iceberg broke up and vanished.
