View from an Ice Cave, Mer de Glace
The Chamonix Ice Cave, or Grotto, is carved into the massive Mer de Glace
Glacier, the largest in France, a short train ride from Chamonix. (*)
To give some context, while located among the most imposing of the French Alps, that is
not a mountain they are looking at, but rather the glacier's towering walls of ice and rock.
From a film image taken in 1994. The current spell of oppressively hot and humid conditions in the eastern U.S.
led to my seeking out some cooler - and less humid - moments not as yet worked up. So, this is its first appearance.

The background, with qualities of a high-key image, blends nicely into the well-lit left side of the end of the tunnel, whereas the dark sides of the tunnel anticipiate some of the structures in the light. Well done!
