To my grandchildren - Nordic glaciers
The Nordic glaciers are among Europe’s largest. At these latitudes the glaciers are at relatively low altitude and in many cases easily accessible. To experience the magic of the blue ice scenery basic glacier skills are needed.
In this project glaciers in Sweden (Ahkka and Kebnekaise), Norway (Bondhusbreen, Nigardsbreen, Galdhöpiggen and Glittertind) and Iceland (Hvannadalshnjúkur) have been explored.
Approaching the glaciers make me feel respectful and very small. Still, collectively, we are ruining these unique environments as global warming melts the ice.
It is saddening to realize that for my grandchildren to experience the glaciers will only be possible by sharing my memories and photographs.
