All those postings here motivated me to dive into my old slides and I have found some real beautiful shots. This one here is made on Greenland in 1979 close to the most southern airport Narsarsuaq. Because I was always interested in the northern part of our world it was just a matter of time that I endet up there.
This ice sculpture came from one of the glaciers. I didn´t touch anything and back home I registered the small waterdrop. Can you find it?

Interesting 'sculpture'. I found the waterdrop! Seems well preserved to me with its 24.5 years of age. Nice.

Striking photo Georg - I see the waterdrop too. At first glance this looks like a bleached skull.
Please show us some more photos from Greenland!

That's really nice and so well detailed. I didn't know something from 1979 would work so well. I can see the drop almost a tear. The light on the ice is very enchanting.

Very well preserved slice - and I would guess the ice itself perhaps 10.000 years ;-) Very well spotted and captured Georg.

I see two drops Georg:-)That is a rather unique sculpture made by nature....in fact it looks a bit like a whale bone washed up on shore.Good contrast between the dark brown and the white of the ice.

Great photo, and very well preserved. Looks like some sort of an ice monster... Great ice texture.

Un superbe cliché pour une magnifique scuplture naturelle ... souvent les icebergs impressionnent par leur monumental volume.
Là, tout est dans la finesse de l'oeuvre de glace, et le fond, lui aussi naturel, donne un résultat sublime.
