A photo essay on the process of glacial formation. The transition from snowflake to glacial ice reads like a story in this image heavy ode to the polar regions. Images captured in Antarctica, the Arctic, Patagonia, Iceland, Greenland, Alaska and the Pacific Northwest. Text and photos by Eric Guth
Raised in the Pacific Northwest Eric now spends over half the year working at sea aboard expedition cruise ships. Employed by Lindblad Expeditions/National Geographic as a naturalist/photo instructor in locations from the high arctic to Antarctica, Eric is humbled to be able to get paid to travel. When not on the high seas he is in search of glacier caves and other ice choked areas of the world in which to seek fresh tracks and photographs.
