Climate change is affecting the Arctic faster than anywhere else in the world. I was very lucky to witness and capture the meltwater that was cascading down from the ice and into the ocean. Austfonna Ice Cap, which is located in Svalbard, is Europe's third largest glacier. It is definitely the most spectacular I've ever come across.
