MER DES GLACES - like waves instantaneously frozen in the midst of a violent storm.

MER DES GLACES - like waves instantaneously frozen in the midst of a violent storm.
The "Mer de Glace" is a valley glacier located on the northern slopes of the Mont Blanc massif. It is 7.5 km long and 200 m deep but, when all its tributary glaciers are taken into account, it can be regarded as the longest and largest glacier in France, and the second longest in the Alps.

SUPERBE image, Christa ! Hélas, avec le réchauffement climatique, la Mer de Glace rétrécit tous les ans .................

Oui, Marie-Claire, c'est terrible. J'ai lu que sur les trente dernières années, la Mer de Glace perd en moyenne un mètre par a, et qu'il devrait avoir pratiquement disparu en 2060 en cas de réchauffement climatique de +1,8°C d’ici 2100 !!

Merci Nora. Malheureusement, le glacier se rétrécit de plus en plus, comme on peut le voir sur certaines photos du passé.

Hi Christa,

As you said, same place, different time! www.ipernity.com/doc/2247998/43345260

I spent a long time comparing these, and think that you were a bit further up the valley than I was here. I had a look through all the rest of my pictures, but could not find this crooked tree anywhere. It is nice to have a different view!!!

One day I am sure we will be in the same place at the same time!!

Best Wishes, and keep safe!!

Thanks Peter. I think we climbed up a little path to get a better panorama from above, and there were several fir trees. And "cheers" to our meeting, one day....
