Argentiere Glacier

I popped out to get a takeaway pizza the other night and got this fantastic view of the Argentiere glacier on the way. The sun and clouds came together perfectly for an atmospheric scene. To the right of the glacier you can see the ski run to the village winding through the trees (no snow on it at this time of year, but a less than three months ago I was skiing it). On a more sombre note, this glacier, like many others, has receded a lot over the last few years - a much more significant indicator of climate change than all the worrying over how much snow such and such a resort got last winter.
