Griesgletscher by deedee20382 Griesgletscher by deedee20382
We spent the night there, on a windy day of the beginning of September, at about 2400 meters (it was very cold, that's what I'm trying to say). The picture was taken in the evening before dinner. You can see my best friend and guide walking towards our MHW tent, with the Gries glacier in the background.

Griesgletscher is a small, easily accessible valley glacier southwest of Nufenenpass. The fact that it has few crevasses, in particular in the lower section, and its simple shape, made it an ideal target for research into ice movement, deformation and structures starting in the 1970ies. Since Griesgletscher covers a major part of the catchment area of Griessee, which is part of a hydroelectric power scheme, annual mass balance measurements are conducted. For more information: overview.

A glacier is a large, slow moving river of ice, formed from compacted layers of snow, that slowly deforms and flows in response to gravity. Glacier ice is the largest reservoir of fresh water on Earth, and second only to oceans as the largest reservoir of total water.

Don't ask me what I made with Photoshop... It was a mess. I'm still experimenting.

This is the first time in a while I honestly can't think of some critique. It is a wonderfully balanced composition. You captured a great gradation from black to white. I say that the levels are spot on with all the texture you managed to capture in the background, and anything under or over would lose it! You did a great job with a distinct foreground and background, the shadows, highlights, the dynamic range... I honestly have nothing to fault you on.

Actually, I could have let more space above, but I'm pretty happy with everything else.
Thank you again for taking the time to comment! :)

All of us have a special place in our heart. But what can we do when this places become to disappear? I think to the melting of the ices...

Griesgletscher has already melt a lot, search for some pictures of 20-40 years ago and you'll see what I mean: the ice used to reach the water...

Mi piacce proporzione tra uomo e ghiaccio.
Veramente duro a trovare il bianco sul neve & ghiacchio. Di solito io provo Exposure Compensation tra +1/3 e +1.
Grande foto....

Per la fotografia ci vuole tanta pratica (usare macchine digitali aiuta...).
