Breathtaking photos show massive icebergs floating by a seaside town
They work. They eat. They sleep. And sometimes, they welcome the arrival of colossal, 10,000-year-old icebergs passing through on a springtime jaunt.
Each year, hundreds of massive icebergs break off from Greenland and drift through shipping lanes in the North Atlantic. The event has has become a popular tourist attraction in Ferryland, Newfoundland, and other towns along "Iceberg Alley."This year's bergs were especially plentiful - scientists aren't exactly sure why, but some think global warming is responsible, according to the Associated Press .
Nevertheless, the phenomenon provides for some spectacular photos.
