A gigantic iceberg passes by a tiny town in Newfoundland and Labrador

 This is what passes as a high-rise in Newfoundland and Labrador, on the little visited north east coast of Canada.

Doreen Dalley captured the unusually enormous iceberg as it passed the tiny, drive-through community of Little Harbour on the island of Twillingate, surrounding it in sheets of ice.

Twillingate has been monikered the 'iceberg capital of the world' as it is one of the best places to view the extraordinary icebergs, which break off from the Arctic and are pushed southward by ocean currents along the coast of Newfoundland, which is known as 'iceberg alley'.

The icebergs are often so huge they can be viewed from commercial flights over the Atlantic.

Slightly south of Newfoundland in the North Atlantic Ocean is where the Titanic sank on April 15, 1912. The wreckage of the liner can be found around 400 miles of its southeastern coast.
