12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

A scene captured on top of the glacier of Sjaktbreen on Svalbard. Fresh snow was falling and the light was bright but mystically soft as it often in on top of the glaciers. A sharp drop and the resulting cracks in the glaciers surface presented an interesting contrast.
