Proglacial lake of Pasterze

WI_at071_510.jpg

The lake shown in this image occupies the forefield of the Pasterze, one of Austria's largest glaciers. It evolved during the 2010s due to massive recession of the glacier tongue. The right side of the Pasterze is, to some extent, protected from thawing by its debris cover.
