Becoming Ocean - 2

Fox Glacier, New Zealand

This image was created in 2010 in the valley leading to the face of Fox Glacier. Glacial runoff poured over the grey moraine running out to the sea as we walked up to the glacier that we could see towering above us at the end of the trail. Now, in 2017, if you stand in the same location where I created this image, according to reports I have read and images I have seen, you would not be able to see the glacier at all. It has retreated significantly over the past seven years, all of that water becoming ocean. Photo © copyright by Loren Logan Lones.
