NZD 12232009

Franz Joseph Glacier

Prepare for an icy week of pictures….

This crevasse is easily 30 feet deep.  The drama is lost without the reference of scale.  Still I love the “flow” of the walls to the bottom.  I love the deep colors of the stone ground into the surface that highlights that flow and each little divot, hole and bump.  I love the purity of the pale blue even if the air entrapped in the ice doesn’t allow it to be transparent.  It gives a softness.   I see in the background the fog lying low on the black stone mountain.  I wonder what this would be like in the sunshine.  Would it glisten? image
