Getting up close with these behemoths of the sea is an extraordinary experience unlikely to be forgotten. Deep striations – cuts in the surface – may have been formed by several actions.
Getting up close with these behemoths of the sea is an extraordinary experience unlikely to be forgotten. Striations such as these may be from grinding along the ocean floor before breaking off and coming to the surface, or may be formed by meltwater runoff cutting into the dense ice, before the berg flipped and when that surface was horizontal.
I took this photograph while sailing in northern Newfoundland, Canada, in my steel sailboat. I’m a full-time sailor, author, illustrator and marine mechanic. I’m currently creating the drawings for my Marine Diesel Basics project – a series of visual guides to all aspects of marine diesel systems. We remember faces much more easily than names, so it makes sense to learn and to remember using as much visual information as possible. Thanks for supporting the Marine Diesel Basics project.
