Shkhara Glacier, Svaneti, August 2007

Below, the river again. (All of these water shots have a shutter speed as slow as the aperture would allow, usually about 1/8 to 1/4 second, in order to blur the water a bit. Hand-held, not tripod-mounted. So they're not as pin-sharp as a tripod would afford; they're still pretty good for such slow shutter speeds.

Above, as close as I got to the glacier itself. It's hard to capture scales here - this is such a gigantic thing, and my 24mm wide-angle lens only makes it seem smaller by compressing more into the image. The little black hole at lower right is a cave big enough to stand up in.
