wow I've never seen any Patagonian glaciers but I'll take your word for it. This was actually the cleanest glacier I saw in Iceland, the rest were covered in black volcanic dust and tephra.

Have to admit I'm not sure how to pronounce these names myself. The locals did give some funny looks when talking to them about places.

What a beautiful picture. The glaicer gives it depth and the people give it a sence of scale. Thanks for sharing

As many have said the scale and angle really sets this picture off, but...!
I wonder if the views from the top of Tryfan was once like this...?

Probably, at least it would have towards the end of the glaciation when the ice sheet was much smaller. At its maximum, Tryfan's summit would have only just protruded above the ice, if it did at all, and the landscape would look like something much more akin to that of present day Antarctica.
