Fragile Ice - Iceland March 2017

Although ice has the power to carve through mountains creating prairies and lakes, its strength now diminishes each day as the ice drips away, unreplenished. We find images which show this massive elegant, fragile beauty near the top of the earth or further south in the Antarctic. A collection of the inspiring, elegant, unaltered photographs digitally captured all over the world.
