Regular visitors of my website know about my captivation for glaciers – created by nature but destroyed by civilization & industrialization – knowing that these shots can’t be replicated anymore a few weeks later
Today I’m sharing shots of a glacier in the French Alps: the Glacier d’Argentière. This glacier belongs to the Mont Blanc massif and is about 9 km long. At good 2’000 meters above sea level it’s tongue reaches a very steep edge. It was pretty impressive to have this mass of ice right in front of my lense with its spikes sparkling in the back light of this sunny summer morning.
Hiking further up gives a great view to the surface of the glacier and taking the cable car up to the Aiguille des Grands Montets allows to see upper part of the glacier and where it originates at the foot of Mont Dolent.
