Perito Moreno in southern part of Argentina is one of the prettiest places I have seen... It's almost 60 meters high and 4 kilometers from side to side... The colors are fantastic and the atmosphere standing looking at this big icemasse to break down is fantastic and breathtaking...

Another picture from the glasier almost identical to this can be seen on TE...

Very very nice and interesting survey.

Ina, Love this POV and the action captured as the ice falls into the sea..The saturation used showing the deeper icy blue colors is great! I like it!!

Moonscape shot with the black sky, even though I've never been on the moon. Very graphic and beautiful, especially the strange blues.

Wonderful landscape. Very good sharpness, color and framed. Regards, Krzysztof.

Yes I saw the other shot and this one is just as good. Great composition of the breaking ice. Love it.

This is a great capture. Perfect timing to catch this ice breaking off. I love those contrasting colors.

Hello Ina, this is an experience not many of us would ever get to see, so thank you for showing it to us. I love the blue colour of the ice, so pretty in the shadows. You caught this one at just teh right time as it was breaking up. Well done.

Wonderful landscape Ina!
It's an amazing shot.Very well done!Thanks for sharing.

WOW...this is amazing and astonishing! Gorgeous shot.

Exquisite shot Ina. Wonderful colours and the action happening here is awesome. Timing for the shot is perfect. Super work. Thanks

This is quite breathtaking Ina. When you think about how old these ice masses are and to see them disect like this. Your timing is good. I wonder if you know: how often did a piece like this break off while you were there?
Good composition, detail, color, and lighting, well done and thank you.

I can hear the sound of breaking ice when I see your photo.
The blue color of the ice is magnificent.
Composition is well done. I like the dark background.

Hi Ina, what an amazing shot. The colours *are* beautiful and the picture is very atmospheric. Do I actually see part of the glacier breaking away here? Brilliant :)

Wspaniałe zdjecie. Ciesze sie, że dzieki fotogalerii mogę takie widoki ogladac. Pozdrawiam

Already an amazing photo because of the blue ice, but to capture it when it is breaking off......fantastic!

Beautiful picture (as the otherone from your Iceland collection). Technically it is good, exposure, focus and compositon. Was the sky that black ? It give a taste to travel in cold region when you see picture like this one. TFS

Amazing Ina! Very good job! This place seems to be wonderful... you look to the picture and think: where is it finish?
TFS. Raphael.

Hello Ina,
Stunning colours and great POV. You must have been very close to the edge of the glacier. Take care! TFS., Thomas

You've captured the moment perfectly.
The blue colour almost doesn't seem real; it contrasts so much with the dark sky and water.
Great pic,
thanx for sharing

Blue color is very dramatic Ina

Its the only Glaciar in the world that still grow..

PS: Very nice Shot

this is a brilliant picture. i love the way how you have managed to catch the ice breaking off and still keep it in focus. how long were you there before the ice finally broke off?
