Jerry Hann of Gander, Newfoundland, snapped a photo of this majestic iceberg in the waters off Summerford.

This has been a great season for iceberg watching in Newfoundland and Labrador, with hundreds of bergs drifting around the coastline. Here is a small taste of the deluge of amazing iceberg photos we've received from our readers.

Not Found on the Beach!


"Each iceberg has its own shape and size. This one, photographed between Fort Amherst and Cape Spear, appears to be a floating white conch shell!"

The Arizona in Bay Bulls?


"Looking down on this iceberg, it reminded me of the USS Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The ice below the water resembles that of the Arizona, while the two huge towers of ice remind me of the white marble which crossed the sunken Arizona."

Berg got the Blues


"It wasn't a very big berg, but it was definitely one of the nicest I've seen in a while. The surface looked so smooth and shiny. The blue icy patches throughout were amazing."
