Start of a new day
This is a painting based on Porters setting off back onto the Biafo Glacier on my trip to Snow Lake and beyoung in the Karacoram mountains. Because the glacier is to dangerous to camp on at the end of every day we had to climb up of it to find a site and then the next day climb back down onto the glacier to start again, the glacier was dangerous because it was flowing down and was just a chotic mass of ridges and deep crevasses also these are 'dirty' glaciers meaning they carry a lot of rock debrie on top and as soon as the sun hits the stones and rocks start to tumble so its an interesting place to walk through. The porters are carrying the big blue food barrels plus other kit like tentage etc. amazing people.
