Weekly Photo Challenge: Mirror


We had plenty of opportunities for this “mirror” challenge while in the Arctic region of Svalbard, Norway.  I chose to use this photo from a glacier bay that was being fed by 5 different glaciers.  The bay contained uncountable chunks of ice floating around – ranging from small icebergs that had calved off the glaciers to much smaller pieces of ice that the glacier had ejected.  This “mini-berg” had been inhabited by many kittiwakes who were preening themselves in the mirror-like reflections in the bay.   A beautiful late afternoon Arctic scene….
