Galactic Icefall

Sichuan, China

2013 January 1

 

From the photographer: "Our home galaxy, The Milky Way and its neighbor, The Andromeda Galaxy, shines in the starry sky of the World Heritage site of Sichuan Giant Panda Sanctuaries in western China. The sanctuaries constitute the largest remaining contiguous habitat of the giant panda, a relict from the paleo-tropic forests of the Tertiary Era. Being one of the biggest icefalls in the area(height:50m; width 20m), it gets frozen up from November to May, making itself the paradise for ice climbers country-wide."
