melting so cold

Everyone is on about climate change and global warming. Yet, this phenomenon looks so cold. German photographer Olaf Otto Becker brought back images of stunning beauty from Greenland of floating ice mountains and rivers of glacier water on its way to the sea. Hearsay has it, Becker risked his life to get these pictures taken. And if one looks at the forlorn dots indicating human presence in this seemingly endless white desert, one understands that this part of the world can devour heartbeats, drain eyery pulse to leave nothing but blotches of bare colour.
