In case you’ve ever wondered what cascading ice looks like, photographers Sisse Brimberg and Cotton Coulson took a peek for you, and the readers of National Geographic. These photos, snapped from Arctic heights by the Copenhagen-based married couple, are exquisite and also daunting: looking at them, it’s like witnessing a crack in Nature’s plans take shape. There should be a word for when awe-inspiring and dreadful, polar (quite!) opposites, combine like this in one single shot.
Nature’s beautiful even while collapsing, but sugar-coating aside, the dam is breaking, and that is as ominous as it sounds. The two photographers are quite involved in raising awareness about global warming and the silent thaw of the polar ice caps. Also, e other more obviously Man-related issues, like how He can’t be bothered to clean up the debris that He leaves in his wake, in this precious ecosystem.
