Nice To Melt You
You gotta look right – whether you’re attending a ZOOM meeting or merely drifting off the edge of a disintegrating ice shelf in far-off Antarctica. The ginormous iceberg above, snapped by Flickr member Christopher Michel in January of 2016, appears to glance off longingly to the open ocean where lies its destiny as another drop in the global sea-rise bucket.
Mask up before you melt down, is the watchword these days! The colossal ice cube above appears to have taken that maxim to heart as its “mouth” is hidden by a fashionably-wrapped face covering. just as well – a blast of frozen breath from this “guy” could do more than just blow one’s boat off course. Flickr member kaplanmyrth caught up with the formidable frozen face back in June of 2008 while sailing past the northern coast of Newfoundland.
THere’s a lot to love in the 2004 photo from Flickr member Rod Brazier: the big-shouldered and cap=wearing gent at far left, a horned toad just behind him, and the two-faced fellow at the right who really takes the ice cream cake! Note his outraged expression as shoulders-guy seems to block his view, yet the berg also sports a more peaceful look as another glacial facial facet stares off to the right, looking down on us mere mortals along a spectacular aquiline nose.
So much for that ol’ “Canadians are so polite” trope, amiright? The towering face of the iceberg above appears to be giving the world a Bronx cheer, several hundred miles north of the actual Bronx in Canada’s province of Newfoundland and Labrador. Just remember: looking is free, licking carries a cost even if there’s no frozen flagpole in sight. Kudos to Flickr member The Tedster for capturing the rather rude iceberg above back in June of 2014.
