"Mount Edith Cavell - Edith Cavell Basin" Mountains/Glaciers/Rivers. Tip by JanPeter74

  Edith Cavell Basin
by JanPeter74
 
 

Needless to say anything. Just look at the picture. And imagine Mount Edith Cavell and the Angel Glacier just above it.

As you can see the basin is filled with ice floes. Look at the glacier in the back. You can see streaks of brown dirt/debris in the blue ice, caused by the growth of new ice layers on top of older ones which had dirt/debris on top of them.

You might not see it due to the perspective, but there are at least some 50 metres of lake between the ice floes and the edge of the glacier.
