So delicate the glacier and yet so mighty, and a stunning contrast to the threatening rocks. I would take me forever and a day to conceive the power that lies in it ~ thank you for sharing, dear Ian ~ warmest greetings,

Thank you dear friends Annie and Maja! It was awesome and magnificent. One can stand on one side of a valley and feel so close to the other side, especially when using a telephoto lens. But, there is nothing familiar to give me a reliable scale, and so I underestimate the size, the power and therefore the majesty and splendour of it all.

Very warm greetings to you both from Brisbane,

And it was a joy to take this photo, Magaritha. The whole landscape is awesome.

Best wishes,
