The eastern coast of Newfoundland, Canada, is one of the best places to spot icebergs, but it’s important to keep your boat a safe distance away. This group were admiring an iceberg located close to the coastal town of Triton when the snowy chunk began to flip over in the water.

Large icebergs will often flip when they first break off from their original ice shelf, rolling into the most stable position. As this video demonstrates, iceberg flipping can also happen to older, smaller icebergs whose shape has changed over time due to uneven melting.
