Mer de Glace
- The Mer de Glace is a valley glacier located on the northern slopes of the Mont Blanc massif, in the French Alps. It is 7.5 km long and 200 metres deep but, when all its tributary glaciers are taken into account, it can be regarded as the longest and largest glacier in France, and the second longest in the Alps after the Aletsch Glacier.
- Anchorage is a unified home rule municipality in the U.S. state of Alaska, on the West Coast of the United States. With an estimated 288,000 residents in 2019, it is Alaska's most populous city and contains 39.37% of the state's population; among the 50 states, only New York has a higher percentage of residents who live in its most populous city.
- Dutch Harbor is a harbor on Amaknak Island in Unalaska, Alaska. It was the location of the Battle of Dutch Harbor in June 1942, and was one of the few sites in the United States to be subjected to aerial bombardment by a foreign power during World War II.
Lac de Mauvoisin
- Lac de Mauvoisin is a reservoir in the canton of Valais, Switzerland. The reservoir is formed by the Mauvoisin Dam, which is 250 m high. The dam is currently the 11th highest in the world, and the 6th highest arch dam. It was built in 1951–1957, and raised by 13.5 m in 1991.

Travelers Tips and Stories about Glacier

On an off chance we found ourselves needing to drive from Inuvik to Tuktoyuktuk, Northwest Territories, Canada, which was only accessible by ice road at the time. It took us about three hours driving on the ice to reach Tuktoyuktuk, which sits on the shore of the Arctic Ocean. This is what you see when you step out and look down. Taken during the last weeks of the ice road before it permanently closed. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/north/arctic-highway-challenges-1.4398726
This was taken on a peak that overlooks Dutch Harbor (Alaska). Two of my friends and I, were on an adventure to shoot a documentary on Atka Island for My Rode Reel 2017. Dutch Harbor was a stopping ground before we reached our destination in Atka. We climbed this mountain and were taken away by the incredible view.
No matter how many glaciers you see, they never seem to disappoint. While trekking across Root Glacier in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, the waves of this glacier took my breath away. The expanse of ice is jaw dropping and really drives home our size on this giant planet.
The annual Lake Louise ice sculpting competition ended awhile ago, but the good work remains. This particular guy, had a top piece that seemed to make you focus out onto Lake Louise itself. I couldn’t resist. I was also taken by the amount of detail one can actually carve into ice.
Perito Moreno glacier in darkness, due to a lower exposure just when the light was hitting the nearer face of the glacier. Initially this was somewhat unintentional but after some post-processing I really like the way it draws attention to the ice, and the dark tones of the water.
Flying over Denali National Park gives an opportunity to see the majesty of nature. These glacial cracks show the deep turquoise water that runs horizontal in the valleys between the massive mountains. In all the whiteness of snow and ice, the color grabbed me to photograph them.
