Great shot about Glacier. LIKE
Nice shot but very low res.
Great shot Ian, looks cold to me. Greetings Berend
Thanks Jeff. It is great to be able to share this experience with you.
Dear g. ganotopoulos.
I am pleased that you like the photo, but I don't know what you mean about the res. This is a 2.68MB file 1400x2100 in size - quite large for Panoramio. And the original is much larger as well. A 1MB file is more than adequate for Panoramio, in my opinion.
I'd be interested in any further thoughts or advice on this.
Ice certainly looks cold but the day was warm and sunny - a lovely autumn day. This glacier descends to low altitude, and so we are not far above sea level at this point. It hasn't been as warm since for the first snows of this winter fell on the high country that very night, as a weather change swept through.
Early snows in April may indicate good snow falls this coming winter.
Wonderful shot my mate Ian, unusual view for me and indeed well captured, hope you doing well and everything is OK around you, have a nice weekend ahead, Ahmet Bekir
It is special to be conversing with you, Ahmet right now. I was just looking at your recent uploads, wishing I could hear your commentary on your recent travel.
Glad that I can share a little of NZ with you. I so much enjoyed each day of our travels. More tomorrow, as we head into Christchurch for more teaching this week.
Stunning! I hope Franz Josef Glacier is not affected by the global climate change.
Yes it is!! See that nick on the top left of the valley wall, Ah-Pong. That was the level of this glacier in 1865!
Thanks for your appreciation of this image.
Wonderful place, wonderful photo!Like
Yes indeed, Georgi, it is a majestic sight. And I am pleased you appreciate the photo too.
Warm regards from NZ.
Nice shot Ian, aren't glaciers magical things! I agree that the res on this photo is more than enough. Good to see more photos of NZ. Enjoy your teaching.
Thanks Greg. Glaciers are special, but I am not so sure about earthquakes - we just had one an hour ago - 5.3 centred about 20kms east - and it got my adrenalin going. There certainly will be many more NZ photos, Greg. The teaching has gone very well - thanks.
Just checked the USGS site and they reckon it was 9.2 km deep. That is not deep! Can imagine there was some serious shaking going on. Stay safe.
Eastern NZ is the shallow quake zone, Greg. But there is little history of quakes in Christchurch so everybody is trying to adjust their thinking to a whole new reality. last night's quake was certainly felt in Timaru so they knew it was pretty serious here.
But we are going well. Thanks for your concern too.
