This is a very famous view, and often used in vacation adverts.
But you got a fantastic shot of that! The light is incredible.
Like and YS.
Must be quite older, when did you took it?

When say say older, do mean the glacier has further receded (:-(?

I took this picture in 2002 with a analogue Camera. I don't remember if the transfer to digital/scanning was done by the Lab or a friend.

Well, most of the glaciers have receded during the last years. But here it looks maybe a bit "naked", because there is no snow on the mountains.
So, in the summertime we can see better the ugly truth of the global warming.
