    Dear Future Generations. We had large bodies of ice called glaciers. This is Perito Moreno Glacier, El Calafate, Patagonia, Argentina. The ice trekking tour on this glacier has to be one of the most surreal experiences of my life. A lot of the North hemisphere glaciers are shrinking but Perito Moreno is one of the most stable glaciers in the world. Being on this body of ice makes you realize how ephemeral and ever changing even the most solid appearing elements of our surroundings are.

    This is so beautiful. I love the letter you wrote to the future generations; it feels so personal. You make me care — which makes your epic photo more meaningful. I love how wide you've shot this frame, creating a sense of scale to the people joining you in "one of the most surreal experiences of [your] life." Well done.
