Living Ice: I Happened To Photograph The Rupture Of Perito Moreno Glacier

I’m Jakub Polomski photographer and traveler. In February 2014, I was in Argentina for the second time in my life. I was lucky to have good weather while standing in front of one of the most spectacular glaciers in the world – Perito Moreno. The glacier is on average 74 meters (240 ft) high above sea level and it’s about 30 km (19 mi) long. This glacier is unique not only because it’s huge. The most important thing is that it is still growing.

Every couple of years there is a huge rupture of the glacier which causes flood in nearby locations. However, depending on weather conditions you can observe this living ice daily. From time to time, the pieces of the glacier fall into the water. Most of them are “small”, but sometimes huge blocks fall down. Here I wanted to show you my sequence of photos in which a really big block is falling into the water.

I Walked 400km On Skis And Snowshoes To Capture Amazing Landscapes In Kyrgyzstan

I Walked 400km On Skis And Snowshoes To Capture Amazing Landscapes In Kyrgyzstan - I Walked 400km On Skis And Snowshoes To Capture Amazing Landscapes In KyrgyzstanI’m Zahariz, a Malaysian adventurer filmmaker currently travelling around the world mostly on a bicycle and making film about my journey.

I’m living the nomadic way of life, calling the road as my home and try to share my experiences and my thoughts through writings, photography and film. I want to spend my life not collecting material things but instead trying to collect as much experience as I can.

Kyrgyzstan is a beautiful small country in Central Asia where almost 90% of the land is mountainous. Recently I’ve been travelling through the Tien Shan (Celestial Mountains) in Kyrgyzstan during the winter season on skis and snowshoes. I walked about 400km and managed to capture the beauty of the landscape on my camera.

Experience The Atlantic Road Trip in Norway

The way connects Averøy island with the mainland at Eide municipality. Because of the rough Norwegian landscape and wild nature, the route has been listed as one of the greatest road trips in the world. Adventurers come to the Atlantic Road in autumn to experience the storms, that hit the drive.

The local villagers didn't bother waiting for the Department of Natural Resources, opting instead to start digging into the snow with their hands. - They Found A Deer In The Snow. But When They Looked Closer, They Were Shocked!!!On a snowy beach in Canada, a scared little doe has been given a second chance at life, thanks to the caring locals of Pointe-Verte, NB.

Their amazing rescue, captured in the video below, nearly brought me to tears.

Winter In Mongolia Is Cold But Incredibly Beautiful

Winters here are long and harsh, with temperatures here typically ranging from -20°C to – 45°C degrees. Most tourists flock here in summer to enjoy the comfortable temperatures and see the vast landscapes of wide open country and nomadic culture.

Mongolia’s winters are home to incredible landscapes for those who are prepared.

It doesn’t snow that much in Mongolia, but since temperatures never climb above 0 for several months, snow that fall stick and stas until the following summer.

Frosted Iceland: My Glacial Roadtrip

I am a 24-year-old photographer from Croatia, currently based in Munich, Germany.

In July of 2013, I took a road trip around the ring road in Iceland to photograph and film breathtaking landscapes. Throughout my journey I explored vigorous waterfalls, elegant fjords, bubbling sulfuric springs, cozy caves and flaming sunsets. While traveling I slept in a twenty year old camper van (the company’s name “Cheap Jeep” perfectly matched the quality of its vehicles).

One of the most fascinating aspects of the scenic landscape were the majestic glaciers, which floated in all shapes and forms on the clear water. The glaciers not only reflected the most beautiful sunsets, but housed multiple birds and seals on their smooth surfaces.

For rights and permission to use my photographs, please contact me here.
