More B15D

I just noticed in the photo that I posted on my last post about the current location of B15D that it is now north of Elephant Island rather than south of the island when I saw it. Between early November and late December it made it's way between the islands. When I looked at the photos from here, it appears that in early December Clarence Island was nearly surrounded by by B15D and C21A and these bergs probably collided south of Clarence. Both are have now moved much farther north and it looks like C21A bounced off of B15D and headed north on the east side of Clarence. It will be interesting to see where they go during the austral summer and just how far north they get before disintegrating. Here are the photos from early November to late December.

Here is another image from November of the entire peninsula with the iceberg and Elephant and Clarence Islands at the upper right portion of the photo.
