Photographer's Note

Please click here for a larger version of this photograph on "beta" TE.

Following on from my last picture, here we arrive as close as we are allowed to go at the Briksdal Glacier, one of the most accessible and best known arms of the Jostedalsbreen Glacier. Some recent falls of ice from the glacier would have made further progression dangerous.

Unfortunately the weather was rather dull and there was a fine drizzle yet the view was still spectacular. However, looking at this image now and comparing it with Erling's photograph from July, 2006 we can see the remarkable shrinkage and recession of this glacier, no doubt the result of recent climatic change.

Here is another more colourful shot in the workshop.

ISO 400, 1/400 sec at f/10, focal length 24mm.
