Glacier Meets Lake

The Big Aletsch Glacier is the largest Glacier of the Alps, some 24 km long and approx 900m thick at a maximum.

There are several spots where the glacier shows very different faces, on this one, it holds a small lake. I really like this place, and it’s a good start for a walk on the huge glacier itself. The +Swiss Photography Club G+ organizes a photowalk on the glacier surface on August 18, 2012. However, this wonderful spot is worth a visit as the dimensions of the glacier unfolds unexpectedly.

I tried to convince my friend to swim over there for a sense of scale, but she refused… So all we have for that is the little waves.

  1. Awesome shot and landscape Wilfried!
    Now I have to thank you for share this photo my friend! 🙂
    Hm, to swim there – nice idea, perhaps only after some climbing! 🙂

  2. Impressionnant : surtout pour la baignade .  l&39;eau est si basse  . Belle photo .

  3. Wilfried Haferland This is such a rich and unique setting you have captured my friend! The colors of the ice and water in the foreground are superb. And my favorite part of this beautiful photo is the ice wall on the left half of the photo. It looks just like the water is actually flowing down the wall. Very cool! 🙂

  4. :-))) Very nice picture Mr. Haferland 😉 
    Looking forward to see it in real life. No such experience from Bettmeralp to Fiescheralp…or I missed it!

  9. Complex and confusing, like an abstract painting. But in a good way, I like it 🙂

    Thanks Wilfried.

  11. Peter Helfer – Thank you! Funny thing is that this lake comes and goes (drains inside the glacier change). Two weeks later it was gone 🙂
