Entry Description

The Athabasca Glacier is one of the six principal 'toes' of the Columbia Icefield, located in the Canadian Rockies. The glacier currently recedes at a rate of about 5 metres (16 ft) per year and has receded more than 1.5 km (0.93 mi) and lost over half of its volume in the past 125 years. The're is a small and dangerous cave outside of the tourist paths where I was able to catch the amazing experience of to be inside a Ancient glaciar cave.

About Photographer

I'm an editorial, landscape and cityscape photographer based in Madrid, Spain, available to travel worldwide. I´m using photography as a medium for inspiration and a means to understand the world. Specializing in European and American fine art landscapes, I admire the works of Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, and the diversity of many I encounter, networking on the Web. My hope is, in some small way, to instill the essence of the incredible vistas I've had the opportunity to see, within others.
