We’re coming up to the period when Winnipeg ice is at its most mesmerizing – the very short time when it breaks up and floats off down the river.
If you happen you get a few free hours when this happens, and it happens to be on a sunny day, you’re in for literally hours of almost hypnotizing beauty.
The sun shining through and off of the edges of the breaking ice, and the sound of the ice cracking and moving off down the river…it’s one of the most fascinating, yet relaxing things I’ve ever witnessed.
That’s not exactly what photographer James Belog captured on a recent expedition up north. He was there to shoot documentary footage, and he set his camera up on a tripod.
Just a few minutes later, the glacier he was watching calved, which normally involves chunks falling off and creating new icebergs.
In this case, the “chunk” that broke off the glacier was the size of lower Manhattan, and it was all caught on video.
Belog was always a Climate Change denier. Not Anymore.
