August 1, Bråsvellbreen, N79°20' W22°50'
In the morning we were supposed to go onto land, but again a polar bear was spotted (our seventh), so we kept sailing and instead had some instructional presentations by the staff.
In the afternoon we explored Bråsvellbreen, an enormous ice shelf more than 180km in length, the longest in the world. I managed to catch a shot of the glacier calving, though my first picture is a bit fuzzy. Given the distance we were from the ice, by the time one heard the crack, the action was pretty much over. We did hear quite a bit of cracking, as well as heard (and saw) a chunk of ice fall into the water inside an ice cave.
