Thnnk you all for your positive comments which are most appreciated.
This view was taken about 40 minutes after sunrise as there are a lot of land related shadows on the ice as seen on the pic. As the ship was approaching, some of these shadows were also protruding along the ship's side. I had to wait for the right time to get a full sunlit view and this is the result. And it sure was cold standing there on the bluff and in the wind...
