Photographer's Note

The glaciers in NZ are unique to the world in that they are much closer to the sea than other glaciers at the same latitude. Despite consistent retreats throughout much of the last century, the Fox glacier has been advancing for about 20 years. In the last 10 years it has advanced almost 1km, and now averages about 40cm per day. Its name was given in 1872 after a visit by the NZ prime minister, Sir William Fox.
Here, the terminmal face of the glacier can be seen in this interesting 'wave' formation.
Just cropped the image, sharpened and posted.
