Border Collie on an Iceberg

The dog looks for a way back... (he did swim back) - the silly thing went after a stone someone threw in.

 

At Jökulsárlón the Vatnajökull glacier breaks into icebergs, which sit in a lagoon until they're small enough to get through the small opening to the sea.

 

(Additional: It is real - though I can see how some may think it's a photoshop job, it is absolutely real - the reason for the lack of shadow is that the ice is translucent, and gradually melting, and is thus a source of diffuse light.)
