Fjords and glaciers of southern Patagonia

The photo below shows something very unusual: a glacier that is advancing. It can be clearly seen, that it is smashing and flattening all small trees that are in his path. This amazing sight is very rare in the times of global warming where most glaciers are receeding.

There are more photos of the fjords, forests and glaciers of Southern Patagonia in the gallery.

A glacier is advancing, smashing and flattening trees in front of it. A very unusual sight in times of receeding glaciers.

The photo was taken in the Pia Fjord in Tierra del Fuego of Chile.
