National Geographic

Backlighting reveals the soft contours of a valley in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park that used to be covered by glaciers but is now blanketed with conifers and glacial lakes. This did not happen as a result of the accelerated climate change we’re witnessing now, but it gives us an idea of the historic landscape transformation we’re going to witness in many places across the Arctic. Follow me @FransLanting for more images of our changing planet.
