Glaciers of the Rockies

Garrett Fisher Aerial Photography Books
Driven by a love of glaciers and a need to see them before they disappear, Garrett Fisher piloted his 1949 antique airplane across the mountains of Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana, photographing remaining glaciers in the American Rockies. From Rocky Mountain National Park to the Wind River Range, Grand Teton National Park, Yellowstone, and Glacier National Park, the Rockies contain a surprising number of glaciers tucked away in wilderness areas…that is, until they are gone...

Glaciers of the Bernese Alps

Garrett Fisher Aerial Photography Books
The Bernese Alps of the Swiss Alps contain renowned and iconic scenery in Switzerland, including the Jungfrau, Eiger, and Mönch, standing tall over Grindelwald and Interlaken. The range is also an epicenter of the largest glacier in Continental Europe, at 23 kilometers long, with a host of many other significant alpine glaciers. All of them are melting and doing so rapidly, succumbing to the realities of climate change. Recent Swiss university studies indicate that only one will remain as a sliver of its present majestic size...

Mountain Texture: Glaciers of the Alps

Garrett Fisher Aerial Photography Books
The author’s 4th aerial texture book and 23rd book overall, ‘Mountain Texture’ is a comprehensive gallery of aerial images taken of glaciers found in Switzerland, France, and Italy. Utilizing a light antique airplane from the WWII era, images of these majestic glaciers show patterns, textures, and details of massive formations of ice, from the intimate perspective of an aircraft flying slowly above. While the glaciers themselves are in the process of recession and extinction, they remain literal rivers of ice that carve immense alpine topography. In their natural cycles of movement, they present themselves as unique and ever-changing works of art, difficult to appreciate through ordinary means on the ground or from satellites above. Containing 167 aerial images, ‘Mountain Texture’ presents virtually unrepeatable views of countless glaciers of the Alps, whether from the perspective closely above, annual flows in ice, or the effects of climate change.

Where the glacier meets the sky, the land ceases to be earthly, and the earth becomes one with the heavens; no sorrows live there anymore, and therefore joy is not necessary; beauty alone reigns there, beyond all demands.


Just to lie here in the sun with great white peaks all around me and the biggest glacier in Europe at my feet, to eat from time to time, to sleep a little and dream a great deal- it is a heavenly existence.
