Perito Merino Glacier is one of the few stable glaciers in the world, neither advancing nor retreating. It was late in the afternoon on a very overcast day, and the surrounding Nothofagus forests were deeply shaded. We were enjoying watching the glacier calving frequently, when suddenly, sunlight pierced the clouds and illuminated the glacier.
Location: Near El Calafate, Argentina
