“I teamed up with the Scott Polar Research Institute in Cambridge. They told me these deep blue lakes were appearing every summer in increasing numbers, higher and higher up on the ice cap. They provided me with satellite images highlighting where they tend to be. But frankly, the second I got up there I could have thrown all the maps away: there are so many lakes, it’s scary. A landscape you’d expect to be pristine white is just littered with blue.” – aerial photographer, Timo Lieber. (via the Guardian)
His aerial shots of the lakes forming on the Arctic ice cap are a beautiful but chilling reminder of the impact of climate change.
