Juneau, Alaska, USA (2018)

A single iceberg floating down the glacier lake from Mendenhall Glacier in Alaska.  Glaciers have a natural life cycle where new glacier mass is formed at the top of the glacier where it is cooler.  That new mass combined with the slope of the underlying terrain causes the glacier to flow down the slope over a very long time.  The ice at the base of the glacier calves off when the temperature of the glacial lake below it melts away the ice.  When pieces break off it is called calving.  When I saw this single iceberg floating down the lake I wanted to create a photograph that showed the bleak look of climate change and the resulting recession of our glaciers.
