Today has been a disappointing day weather-wise. Low-lying cloud, brief showers and poor views. This continues a long-term story of poor summer weather in the Alps this year.
So, in selecting an image for today, I’ve gone back a few days to another shot taken from Rotenboden. Glaciers are always interesting when viewed from above. You see the crevasses. And you see the water holes and little lakes created by the surface water that flows down a glacier in summer – gouging troughs, creating channels.
What do you see in this image? Maybe a couple of eyes and a gaping mouth? We’re looking down around 1,000ft onto the Gorner Glacier, whose snout I got close to yesterday. Click here to go that Post.
