Late evening (10-11:30 PM)

While walking along the shore following the storm I spied this iceberg. Notice in the picture how small the ice berg seems.

I was amazed at the ice “sculptures” lying along the beach. The wind, rain, water, shorelines, rocks, and waves have combined to create many amazing pieces of art. This near-perfect triangular-shaped ice reminded me of a diamond.
