Incredible moment huge sheets of ice from the Alaskan glacier hit the sea and cause a gigantic wave
- Massive shards of ice fell from the Chenega glacier in Alaska and crashed into the ice-cold water
- Photography tour witnessed the moment when the ice fell from the active glacier at Prince William Sound
- When birds started to fly away, an avalanche of ice suddenly crashed into the ocean and created a huge bow wave
Huge pieces of ice fell from an active glacier in Alaska and crashed into the sea, causing birds to flee and cause a huge wave.
Chenega Glacier threw the huge fragments in the sea last month when tourists went on tour in Prince William Sound, Alaska.
Small pieces began to fall that escalated into larger and larger pieces that fell from the glacier.
With birds on the run, an avalanche of ice suddenly crashed into the ocean and created an enormous bow wave effect.

An enormous one was created by the huge sheets of ice that fell in the ocean around Prince William Sound, Alaska
Chris Bray was on a photography trip when they observed the Chenega Glacier on August 16.
The peaceful scene was perfect for some landscape photos, but Bray was focused on and took up the glacier when the loud crackling noise began.
Bray said: & # 39; I had been filming this part for a while that looked particularly active and had just given up and lowered my camera when suddenly a small piece started to fall.
& # 39; It was great to see the ice shatter as it flew onto the rocks and the huge shock wave in the water and all seagulls.
As the shards of ice falling from the Chenega glacier grew larger, birds fled the area and a wave was created by the falling ice
& # 39; There is no sound on the video, but the explosive power was so loud that I could feel it in my chest.
& # 39; When I started filming, I expected it to fall just that first little piece of ice, but because I kept filming, I couldn't believe it when the whole wall of ice began to fall into my photo frame.
& # 39; I was in a small boat, so it was a struggle to keep the camera still, but I really didn't want to ruin this photo, it was epic. & # 39;
