Water, snow and ice

The freshly fallen snow glistens in the sun and the ice shimmers blue if it contains a large amount of air. It also shimmers turquoise like the water in mountain lakes.

Glacier streams know no borders. They are able to move large rocks and they are grinding the landscape. These giants move elastically and rigidly towards the valley and are keeping the nature alive.

However, the glacial retreat represents a major challenge to the complex ecosystem.
