Nothing quite like blue ice. Great photo.

What a majestic view!

Arija said...

Great angle on the glacier. It seems to have a very long flat tongue, is it receding as rapidly as most others?

Carolyn Ford said...

I wonder what it looks like 5 years later? That is really something spectacular! Did you walk on it?

Clytie said...

Truly amazing. The colors are astounding.

Steve Borichevsky said...

Wow, these colors are unreal!

Dan said...

Looks very atmospheric, and again, bitterly cold!
Thanks for the tip on the cheeze - I'll keep an eye out for that.
I hope you manage to get a yard when you move!
Best wishes
Dan

There is something quite amazing about the blue color of glaciers, especially when one sees it in person.

You captured that glacial blue wonderfully. Beautiful.

Ann said...

That is a big glacier, and ending in the sea. The blueness is incredible. I went to two in New Zealand, long walk, but worthwhile.
