Melting Greenlandic Aerial Patterns By Daniel Beltrá
Renowned aerial and conservation photographer Daniel Beltrá has seen his share of the effects of global warming. For more than two decades, Beltrá’s work has taken him to all seven continents.
His most recent undertakings took him to Iceland and Greenland, where he once again photographed the terrain from a small plane. Greenland, which is 80% covered in ice, was a logical place for Beltrá to continue his ice project. Hovering above the ground, he captured the melting ice sheets, revealing majestic photographs of ice as it merges with the water. The landscape shimmers in whites and blues, melting under the debris of volcanic ash.
