The Athabasca Glacier is one of so many glaciers in our planet in great danger due to the climate change; it has retreated more than 1 km in the last 100 years. The ice-cave in these photos, in the border of the glacier, collapsed a few weeks after I visited it and the place where it was it is not glacier anymore. Getting inside an ice cave it is like time travelling, having the chance to witness the ancient ice and its tragic end. I was very fortunate for being there, photographing a stunning place that does not exists anymore and capture its vulnerability and its last splendour.
