Alps around here are know for their glaciers, and I have been always drown to photograph them. As it is quite dangerous activity to move over the glacier, it requires some knowledge and in ma case I usually take a guide with me. Security is important, and remember it is also illegal to venture the glaciated terrain on your own.
I am not an expert on glaciers or climate change, but as frequent visitor, I am very concerned about their latest state. I consider glaciers as big data bank, where the memory of our planet Earth is stored. They have been here much longer then we humans, and it is shocking how quickly they are disappearing, especially during the last ten years. According to some estimates Alps can be without glaciers in 20 to 30 years from now.
I am quite fortunate having still a chance to visit the glaciers, and be able show them to my kids. Unfortunately, they might not be that lucky with their children. Therefore, I think we should all do our best to reduce our carbon footprint, at least try to slow down the climate change process a bit, as I fear the worst that it is already too late to stop it.
I hope these photos will motivate you to think about consequences of our lifestyle, and that they will serve as memory of something we are loosing and in some cases have already lost.
