This beautiful, yet sad image I took of a Melting Glacier on Mont Blanc that will disappear in the next decade due to global warming left a mark on me.
We took a train up to the top of where the glacier used to be 50 or so years ago. A set of metal stars stretched down to the base of the glacier. We descended hundreds of feet down to the man-made ice cave, carved out for tourists every year. On the way down, every few flights of stairs, we saw placards for each decade attached to the rock. The placard showed where the top of the glacier was at that time.
Knowing that this could be the last time we saw it made our hearts sink. We ponder why some people still think that global warming is fake when the evidence is all around us.

It's the view from the State Highway 8 with Lake Pukaki in the foreground. Temperatures were around 24c at Lake level, nice day.

Great pic Dave lucky to have it so clear👍
This was just before sunrise on the Oregon coast.
Fuji X-T20 with 18-55 at 55mm. ISO 200, f/11, 15 seconds. I don't remember if this was a 6-stop or a 10-stop ND filter.
I know - this was the year previous on the Big Vic. On the nice day we were on a Gold Wing.
Just got back from a small white-knuckle road to the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. The mountains are 13,000' and the snow melts gradually, making these green valleys where families bring their milk cow to graze for the day.
The Bird River Track in Tasmania, one of my favourite ever hikes, follows an old abandoned railway line down to the sea shore, which the rainforest has done its best to reclaim.
Nikon F80, scanned from a 35mm slide. Film was probably Ektachrome 100.

Here is a lake from Wyoming - Lake Yellowstone, in winter, with Carrington Island in the foreground with a lonesome tree that Mark Muench has determined to call the Muench Tree upon it.
Mount Sheridan is in the background
