Exit glacier has has receded 300 metres in the past 10 years – the viewing platform for surveying the glacier would have been under several feet of ice just a few years ago. Today it’s on dry land. There’s quite a river flowing from underneath it, as you can see. It’s very difficult to show the extent of the glacier from the ground, and still bring across a sense of its melting. That’s why I used the wide-angle lens!
