Jökulsárlón, Iceland
The glacier lagoon Jökulsárlón was created by the melting of the nearby glacier Vatnajökull. Around a hundred years ago this glacier tongue almost reached to the ocean. Global warming affects the lagoon as well. Around 1975 the lagoon was 8 square kilometers and today it is over 20 square kilometers.

Glacier Waterfall, Alaska
Photograph by Jonathan Tucker, Your Shot

A photo I took while standing under a glacier in Alaska. You never know what true fear is until you're under a melting glacier and you hear a crack that is so loud it feels as if you're inside a storm cloud and you hear the thunder right beside you. There are many places in the world that I still want to see and photograph but I do not know if any place would beat this experience. The light you see in this photo is from a hole in the roof of the glacier.

Antarctica Penguins
Photograph by Nancy Leigh, Your Shot
Woke up on this cold and snowy day in Antarctica with a sore throat, laryngitis, and a fever. No time to feel sorry for myself and stay in bed. Climbed into the Zodiac dressed in what seemed to be a million layers. On the day I felt the worst, and shivered in the snow and wind, I took my favorite photographs of the trip. These two gentoo penguins were perched high above the icy water on the shelf of an iceberg. Were they angry with each other, on the lookout, breaking the wind for each other?
