📷 Blue Ice of the Perito Moreno Glacier - PhotoFeed Around the World

in Photography Lovers8 months ago (edited)

This is the magnificent Perito Moreno glacier, located in the Argentinean part of Patagonia. Today I invite you to admire some views of this glacier, which I captured during one short visit there.
It's funny how differently, depending on the lighting and background, we perceive the color of ice, . In the shade, against the backdrop of mountains and fog, the ice wall looks rich blue, almost unearthly beauty, and the melt water below it too.
But under the bright sun, the blue color of the ice is not so saturated, it brightens noticeably, but still remains blue — all glaciers are like that.
The bright green and sometimes reddish leaves of the bush add some contrast to the photo.
Both ice and water sparkle in the sun. I like this view!
And here is a view from a more distant angle. The smooth surface of the shore and the slopes of the mountains leaving in the fog, the turquoise water of Lake Argentino — all this made a strong impression on me.
The glacier constantly, day after day, drops pieces into the waters of this lake and becomes part of it, feeds it. Entire huge blocks several tens of meters high fall sometimes.
Much more broken ice is visible in the narrow strait to the left. Periodically, the glacier reaches the opposite shore of the lake there and blocks the communication between parts of the lake, but then the ice still breaks and this channel is cleared.
The Perito Moreno Glacier is a wonderful place and I hope to show more photos from there later :)

Wowww. This is breathtaking. I've never seen anything like this before. I definitely want to go there

May your trip take place soon! It's a magical place, like the rest of Patagonia :)

Super awesome shots!

I am very glad that you liked them :) This is just a great place, such a power of the glacier and mountains around, such peace. And it's pretty easy to get there.

You are very lucky to witness this unique creation. I hope climate change won't destroy this beautiful one.

Yes, I was happy to be there! And I was glad to know that this glacier is not shrinking - about the same amount of ice is being formed as it is melting. So I hope people can enjoy it for a very long time.

This is absolutely stunning, pure natural beauty and magical atmosphere. This place is now definitely on my travel list

Totally agree, it's a great place!
I am very glad that I could inspire you to travel there, Patagonia is generally famous for its insanely beautiful landscapes :)

Very beautiful!!!

Oh yeah! Thank you :)

Wow such a beautiful Ice Landscape. The Glacier looks just amazing.

Yeah, I dreamed of seeing Perito Moreno. The glacier is one of the most famous attractions in Patagonia, included in literally all tours - and it is really worth a visit. There are often a lot of tourists there, but we were lucky, at the same time there were rather few people with us.
