Landscape, Svalbard - 4

Svalbard / Spitsbergen pictures, travel in the Arctic

The lower slopes of a glacier picked out by the sun towards evening. The dark ridge in front of the glacier is the terminal moraine made of rock pieces from dust up to small stones with some larger pieces amongst them. This rock has been transported by the glacier on its path down through the mountains until it finally melts out, the darker streaks and regions are where exactly that is happening.
