Meelis Kivirand - The edge of glacier

Meelis Kivirand - The edge of glacier

The edge of glacier which seems quiet and calm, is not it in reality. Glacier lives its own life. Pieces of ice are droping continously, making strong sounds when crumbling and falling into water. After kayaking for the first time 100 meters away from the glacier, happened suddenly near me, that huge piece of ice jumped out from the water . I realised, that most of the glacier lies actually under the water.
