Erasing Time

Photo and caption by Les Richmond

The colorful sculptures of ice, melting from the Eviseidfjord glaciers in Greenland, provide views of newly exposed land, hereto covered for centuries in ice. The clearer ice in the foreground is many centuries old, having been pressed by the force of the glacier. The more cloudy, opaque ice in the back is 'newer' ice. Neither is a match for the warming temperatures, which are melting this historic ice and glacier into the sea at an unbelievable rate.

Location: Eviseidfjord, Greenland
