Falling ice from glacier front with blue ice , Svalbard

Year: 2011
From collection: General collection
Taken by: Peter Prokosch
Glacial ice appears blue under immense pressure. Snow falling onto ice is compressed as the glacier winds its way through valleys, to a body of water (river, lake, ocean etc.) During its travels, air bubbles trapped in the ice are squeezed out by the pressure and the ice appears blue.
