Glacier.zermatt.arp.750pix.jpg(750 × 536 pixels, file size: 90 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg)

Lateral moraine on the Lower Theodul glacier joining the Gorner Glacier, Zermatt, Switzerland.
The Gorner Glacier runs along the bottom of the picture.
The moraine bank runs up the left hand side of the picture and results from rocks and earth falling onto the glacier and from rocks being pulled out by the moving ice. If the glacier then melts a little the moraine bank is left clearly visible.
Taken by Adrian Pingstone in 1963 and released to the public domain.
