'Before and After' image (Glacier Bay)
Not strictly speaking 'before and after' shots, but here to illustrate how this corner of the world looked before global warming took over.  During a scientific expedition to Alaska, one of our research camps was opposite White Thunder Ridge, at a place known as Nunatak Cove (a nunatak is an Athabaskan Indian word for a hill- or mountain-top that protrudes above the surrounding icefield).  Our day would invariably begin with a fight to get through the ice in our inflatables to the site of that day's work in the post-glacial streams. The danger was not from slush ice, but the growlers - the larger bergs that can capsize at any moment, preferably not when you're anywhere near them.    But there's no danger now - there's no ice.
