Jagged Edge Mer De Glace   Mer De Glace, Chamonix, France

The Mer De Glace is one of the largest glaciers on the Mont Blanc Massif.  A slow moving river of ice that sweeps down from the top and peters out at the head of a visitors railway line.  Global warming however has taken its toll the glacier has dropped back hundreds of metres in very few years and it is now a drop down to the ice fields of several hundred steps it is also more like a boulder field and actually not particularly photogenic.  The mountain opposite however was a stunner, a vertical spire that pierced a ring of cloud with furrowed leading lines that draw your eye upwards to the immense snow covered peak.
