The man who photographed a ‘penis-shaped’ iceberg spotted off the eastern coast of Canada says he is in “awe” of how quickly the image has gone viral.

Jamie Ellison, a horticultural instructor based in Nova Scotia, discovered the curiously phallic shaped tower of ice during a visit to Griquet, Newfoundland.

He told RT.com that the image was taken on July 7, while he was touring the area with local tour guide Todd Boland.

The iceberg has since caught the attention of many people and publications online.

“I’m in awe at the speed of how information travels and that humans seem curious about our anatomical representations in nature,” Ellison told RT.com.
