De Geerd­a­len

Ano­ther day in Nor­dens­ki­öld Land, a bit fur­ther east this time, again tra­ve­led few kilo­me­t­res only, again spent a lot of time try­ing to dis­co­ver some­thing new in the land­scape and pho­to­graph it. One of the­se pho­tos led to the spon­ta­neous idea of the eas­ter brain­teaser, and I thought that this show­ed very nice­ly how a mate­ri­al belie­ved to be rather fami­li­ar – gla­cier ice – sud­den­ly reve­als some­thing com­ple­te­ly new as soon as you take a new, careful approach to look at it, even for someone who has spent a good part of his life near gla­ciers.

Pho­to­gra­phi­cal­ly, a bit of a chall­enge. Mil­li­met­re work in free­zing degrees. I don’t know if the result jus­ti­fies the effort, but who cares? One thing is sure: the plea­su­re of doing it was reason good enough for doing it. See­ing some­thing new and try­ing to figu­re out how to pho­to­graph it. (or not … ☺)
