Approaching the iceberg as the boat rounds out of Great Brehat harbour, the giant ice formation looked a little like an angry old man.

Steaming further around the iceberg, his face changes just a little.

A wave formation comes into view as we circle around some more.

The tunneled wave is more apparent again from this angle.

What was a man’s face is now a tower shooting out of a platform around the back of the iceberg.

“It looks a little like a swan, don’t you think?” was one lady’s comment.

Approaching the iceberg from the Little Brehat direction a few hours later, the giant ice shape almost seems to be mimicking the rocks around it.

As was go further into open water, so too the view of the berg is less obscured by rocks and instead looks a little like a lion’s head.

The angry old man is back. Or is it, as one of the locals commented, more like a giant presidential face carving?

The craggy iceberg from another angle.

Through the shallow pools carved through the middle of the berg, another ice behemoth is visible further out to sea.

The general consensus was that from this angle, the berg looked more like lion.

The lion again, perhaps?

I’m crrruuuushing the berg.

We say farewell to the shape shifting iceberg as we steam back into Great Brehat harbour.

The Pen was lucky enough to be out on the water on a gloriously sunny Wednesday this week as a throng of people headed out to Little Brehat as part of the Great Brehat Come Home Year celebrations. This stunning example of an iceberg was grounded just off the shores of Great Brehat and we got up close and personal, circling around it to document the changing faces of an iceberg. Special thanks to Dwayne and Norm Cull, who skippered us there and back in their boats.
