The photo above showing a glacial lake, Western Brook Pond, in Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland, Canada was formerly a fjord. It acquired its current shape during the last ice age. When the glaciers retreated, the land at the mouth of the fjord rebounded upwards, cutting it off from the ocean. It's now a pristine freshwater lake. Photo taken on July 15, 2004.
