Remember the movie War of the Worlds and you see those crazy images of the Tripods? You can see just how massive in scale they are? That’s kind of like what this photo reminds me of. Only this isn’t a Tripod and it’s not out to destroy all of human life (at least I don’t think). The sheer size of this iceberg is mind boggling. In fact it’s 50 feet larger than the one that sank the Titanic. According to Boredpanda
A small fishing village on Canada’s East Coast has been hit by a sudden flood of tourists after a 150ft tall iceberg became visible near its shoreline over Easter weekend, and they might have to get used to it. The bombastic berg has parked near Ferryland, a remote community in Newfoundland famous for “Iceberg alley,” a stretch of its coastal waters which are frequented by Arctic visitors. At a whopping 150 feet tall, the iceberg is even larger than the one that notoriously struck and sank the Titanic in 1912.
Though you won’t find Jack and Rose checking out Ferryland’s newest occupant, the village has apparently become jammed up by tourists eager to see it, and photos of the phenomenon are already adding up on social media.
Since the iceberg has reached shallow water and is currently stagnant, it’s not likely to drift away anytime soon. This could spell out big business for Ferryland, although according to residents interviewed by CBC, the town’s only 2 restaurants don’t open until the 24th of May.
Pretty amazing site if you ask me. Mother Nature can be a beautiful thing. It’s just too bad this Iceberg is actually drifting which essentially means it was part of something larger, probably broke off due to something melting. Global warming anyone? Sorry to rain on the parade of this awesome site but it’s the truth right?
