Photographer's Note

The Perito Moreno glacier, located in the Los Glaciares National Park, Santa Cruz Province, is one of the most spectacular attraction of the Argentinian Patagonia. The front of the glacier is about 5 km wide and is about 70 meters above the sea level. Sound of ice cascades continuously interrupts the silence but when the thrust of the glacier becomes too strong huge iceslides fall down to the sea producing impressive roars. Depending on the speed of the glacier advance, it is estimated that the present ice wall was produced about 2000 years ago.
