Fine Art Friday–Glacier Landscape–Argentina

Happy Friday!  I just gave a walking tour and it was deceptively cold out there.  When winter seems to drag on, I like to remind myself of how beautiful snow and ice can be.  I shot this while hiking on top of a glacier during an amazing trip to Argentina and Chile a few years ago.  On the hike, we spotted clear lagoons, rushing streams, and deathly crevasses. Your monitor doesn’t do justice to just how turquoise that water was–truly spectacular.  This ice field accounts for the world’s third largest reserve of fresh water, and is one of the only glaciers in the world that is not retreating.  Here are few more photos from an earlier post.  Have a great weekend–enjoy the winter weather!
