The Image
The ‘Mer de Glace’ glacier sits high above the Chamonix valley floor in France and is one of nature’s great compositions. I hiked over 5 kilometres with 2700ft of ascent to reach this location in time for sunrise. When I arrived at my location I was blown away with the scale and beauty of the scene before me. I had made it just in time for the light. I set up my camera, framed my composition and exposed only a few images with the first one being perfect, the rest were to serve only as a backup. The building clouds on the mountain peaks were part of an incoming weather system that would cause torrential rain and flooding across France. I remember hiking back down the trail, the sun was shining and the birds were singing. I was tired after my long hike, but tired in a good way. I felt satisfied and proud of myself for committing to the photograph. I wanted to remember that moment and how I felt half way down the trail, so I closed my eyes, took a deep breath and squeezed my thumb and index fingers together. To this day I can still take myself back to that moment by closing my eyes and pinching my fingers together.
