Photographer's Note

With twenty-four miles long, the Jungfrau-Aletsch glacier situated between the cantons of Valais and Bern in Switzerland is described as the largest glacier in Europe. It has countless ice sheets overlaid by the time they reach at its deepest point, nearly a thousand feet deep.
Living white, faded or soiled by the earth, almost all wearing shades of peace in the landscape of the glacier. Amid the fading colors of rock faces, the blue sky and green of the existing vegetation eyes are attracted by the various shades of white snaking valley glacier ice.
The highest peak of the Jungfrau reaches 4158 meters and can be visited via a cable car ride
