Perito Moreno

Add to Cart
Perito Moreno Glacier protrudes from the eastern side of the Southern Patagonia Ice Field. Glacial ice is blue because it is so dense. The longer it is under pressure the more tiny air bubbles are squeezed out of it, allowing it to absorb more of the red end of the spectrum from sunlight, leaving the blues for us to enjoy.
