Petermania (XXI): Sunday ride

A more intimate view of Petermann at around mid-day on Sunday. After several days of painfully slow movement, if any, the ice island managed eight kilometres in 24 hours. At the time Terra took its snapshot on Sunday, it was less than four km from the coast at St. Carol's, and extended right outside the entrance to St. Anthony harbour. If it doesn't ground or drag bottom again, it may start towards a close encounter with the uninhabited Grey Islands (bottom centre):
