Day 259

Those chunks of ice floating below the glacier are some of what we saw fall in previous posts.


Before the glacier calves, you hear a loud booming, a few seconds before the ice falls.  I recall this was called “white thunder”.  It is the ice cracking prior to the fall.  You have a couple of seconds to figure out the direction and try to see some movement, then to zoom in to catch the action.  The farther away you are the less time you have to do so.  Sometimes you hear the “white thunder” and never so see any calving.
