Following on from my #climate series. Here are two photos of #Iceland #Glaciers  the first, is from Sólheimajökull Glacier near the southern tip of Iceland as it appeared in April 2009 (top) and the same view in February 2012 (bottom), showing how much the glacier has diminished within just a few years from my last trip! Photograph analysis was done by James Balog at the Extreme Ice Survey,
The glacier, Solheimajokull, a tongue of ice reaching toward Iceland's south-east coast, has become an apologue of climate change in recent years: Retreating an average of one Olympic pool-length every year for the past two decades due to climbing temperatures, warming ocean currents and disrupted seasons. Iceland, lying just below the Arctic Circle, is one of the fastest-warming places on the planet – as much a four times the Northern Hemisphere average. The 300-some glaciers that cover more than 10 percent of the island are losing an average of 11 billion tons of ice a year. - The annual volume carried away from Iceland's glaciers and not replaced by new snow would fill 50 of the world's largest trucks every minute for the entire year.

Some of the country's glaciers have vanished already and several others will be gone within a decade or two, and a generation from now there may not be enough water to drive turbines or slake a nation's thirst. Dust storms will swirl over dry glacier beds while huge expanses of exposed earth erode.  Without glaciers, one resident quipped, Iceland is "just land."

Delighted to see my work on the Lewis Glacier featured at the f2 Fotofestival in Dortmund (from 22 June to 16 July). Here, from that series, a visualization using fire of the receding Lewis Glacier on Mt. Kenya. A mapping of “time’s thickness” by pyrographically documenting glacial retreat. Using long exposures made in the middle of the night, the resultant images stem from the simple act of walking with a flaming torch along the glacier’s previous boundaries ...Thanks to @projectpressure for getting me thinking about climate change and providing help and data.

My paintings harbor memories. Within the layers of each piece, is a story full of auditory, visual, olfactory, and emotional significance. I gambled with its safely and brought "Teton Solitude" in a helicopter to our backcountry hut trip in BC last April. (My painting panels are very fragile). This piece holds memories of painting by kerosine lamp, singing along to strumming guitar strings, of schussing slush and ice, the smell of pine smoke, the warmth of the sauna, and first pink light on glacial peaks at day break. Though the original is gone, simply seeing this little photo evokes feelings of that trip, memories of solving color and compositional puzzles between bites of soup, and feeling so alive and happy. These memories will always flood back when I look upon this painting, and each and every painting holds special significance for me. // #rachelpohlart #mountainart #tetons #fairymeadows #mountains #glaciers #igohardinthepaint #lakesolitude #tetonsolitude #grandtetons #grandtetonnationalpark

Pleased to see my work on the melting away of the Lewis Glacier on Mount Kenya featured at the f2 Fotofestival ( @f2_fotofestival ) in Dortmund which opens today, (22 June). Here, from that series, a visualisation of glacial retreat using long exposures made in the middle of the night. The resultant images stem from the simple act of walking with a flaming torch along the glacier’s previous boundaries to illustrate a ‘layered’ history of glacial recession on the mountain.

Visit @f2_fotofestival (22 June to 16 July)

It is estimated that by 2030, all of the #glaciers in #glaciernationalpark will be gone. I feel humbled, privileged and many other words of gratitude that I was able to visit this great place. On to Yellowstone tomorrow! #glaciernps #findyourpark #rockthepark #climatechangeisreal

Spectacular flight up to Anchorage! #alaska #glaciers #mountains


As Mount Hood casts an isosceles triangle of massive proportions out upon the world, I am briefly distracted from the anxiety of descending off the summit and into the steep and exposed west variation of the Old Chute. 💙🏔

Stay cold, lil glacier!!! Here's Matier Glacier feeding into Upper Joffre Lake in Pemberton, BC. Without a doubt one of the best afternoons I've ever spent walking uphill. Everything they say about 🇨🇦 is true!!! (HT to @taymargot for bringing his "field glasses" along to get a closer look 😂😘).

What a wonderful midsummer in Iceland 🗻 Photo by @wataneeyawech #gamsunticeland

The 2 glaciers that you see behind me were only one some years ago... climate change is a fact and is happening now! Humans our future is in your hands, please take care of our planet... is now or never 🌱🌎🌊
