Calving Glacier, Spitsbergen

Calving Glacier, Spitsbergen
For me, among the most spectacular sights in the Arctic are calving glaciers. Here, large chunks of the terminal face of Lilliehöökbreen in Spitsbergen fall into the sea, startling a flock of Kittiwakes into flight. The sound is immense, and always reaches you a second or two after the initial impact.
