Breathtaking photos show massive icebergs floating by a seaside town
An iceberg floating past your window doesn't sound like something you'd readily get used to, but for the residents of Newfoundland in Canada, it's business as usual.
This enormous iceberg, one of the first of the season to float into 'iceberg alley, ' has turned the small town of Ferryland into a sudden tourist spot.
Ferryland Mayor Adrian Kavanagh told The Canadian Press on Monday that the iceberg looked grounded and could stick around. He added that it was the biggest one he had seen around the area so far and was hopeful that more would follow soon. But a massive iceberg sitting just offshore has lately been drawing crowds to the community, even as it slowly drifts away.

Iceberg season runs from spring through late summer and the waters start to refreeze in mid-September.
The town is an hour south of capital city St. John's, and cars were bumper-to-bumper over the weekend as people flocked to the town to see the iceberg.
Pictures have been making the rounds on social media, including one of a helicopter apparently parked on one end, looking insect-sized by comparison to the huge iceberg. Local Don Costello told CBC News the iceberg probably won't be moving unless winds keep blowing because it's stuck on shallow ground.

It's been a busy season for icebergs so far, with 616 already having moved into the North Atlantic shipping lanes compared to 687 by the late-September season's end a year ago.
Michael Mann, director of the Earth System Science Center at Pennsylvania State University, said it is possible climate change is leading to more icebergs in the shipping lanes, but wind patterns are also important.
