[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Southernmost glacier in the northern hemisphere on Yulong ("Jade Dragon Snow Mountain"). Said to be affected by earth warming and may eventually disappear. Not yet convinced about earth warming - they are now talking about climate change instead - but definitely a matter of serious concern.

Note: Originally uploaded as if a colour photo. That oversight is regretted. The landscape was almost totally black and white that day with the cloudy sky and the grey and black rocks.

Hallo Neels
Every time I open one of your images you take me on a educational journey through the world, and how fortunate I am to get this all free of charge. There once was another member James Parker who used to do the same, but he has not been around for such a long time, and you have come and filled the void. Since I have been a member of Trek Nature I have learned much, much more than in all the time that I have been a scholar. What I cannot understand is the subjects I normally did not like at all at that time, is turning out to be very interesting. Maybe it is the tutors we have here at Trek Nature that makes the subjects so much more fascinating. It is just as this image of the Southernmost glacier you share with us today. Just one question: How come it looks like a black and white photo, but in the medium you stated it is in colour? Is the black and white colour, or should I rather say, pale colour how it appears to be when one look at it in real life?
Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

I am not going to comment on the technical aspect of this image Neels, that important element has been carefully implemented here. The visual impact of this monochromatic image is simply out of this world my friend. Those gorgeous contrasts between the dark rocks/soil and the grayish/white body of the ancient glacier is remarkable. What a sad story, that we are eventually going to lose their beauty one day. And that day seems to come sooner rather than later.
Great image which reflects a great tragedy in my opinion!
