Eureka Prize: Receding Glacial Cap with Cryoalgae

For promotion of New Scientist Eureka Prize for Science Photography only.

A storm front rises over a rugged and weathered glacial cap stained by blue and pink Cryoalgae, as it recedes due to global warming. This region of the Antarctic Peninsula has undergone one of the highest temperature increases in the world over the past 50 years.
