The 108-foot-long two-masted schooner was dwarfed by the 300-foot-tall turquoise iceberg. /VCG Photo

The 32-year-old photographer braved temperatures of minus 10 degrees Celsius as he waited for the vessel to reach the center of the arch of the iceberg. /VCG Photo

“We had to be careful not to get too close though, just in case the iceberg collapsed, which would have produced some colossal waves,” Rushworth said. /VCG Photo

    What happened to the paved road all the way to the carbonado west side? In 1980 we would drive there and hike. Beautiful Mowich lake! In 2018 when I went to visit, no paved road anymore? My rental couldnt stand up to the road.
