Landscape Monday: Wind Slab by photographer Nick Meek

Taken from Nick Meek’s blog: There’s a cable car that runs from the Aiguille Du Midi at the foot of Mont Blanc, France to the Rifugio Torino in Italy. It passes over the Glacier Du Giant, a massive area of snow, ice and crevasses. Whilst hovering a couple of hundred meters above in this tiny cable car I noticed that it’s really hard to get a sense of scale. The constant beating of the the wind etches patterns in the snow as it cuts through soft and hard layers. But are these shapes meters tall or just a few centimeters.

The series was nominated for the AOP awards and appears in the awards book.
