Photographer's Note

You will see many icebergs when you visit the Perito Moreno Glazier in the Patagonian region. Very large chunks of ice ( 60 meters pieces ) fall to the lake ( Argentinian Lake ) and they float and drift pushed by the wind.
The ice may have travelled 30 Km ( that is the length of the glazier ) over a period of many years....and eventually, after its release ,it becomes an iceberg which gradually melts away over a period of some months.
