Lago Argentino can be seen in the foreground. At the time shown, this glacier is approx. 250 square kilometres large and 30 kilometres long. It originates from the Southern Patagonian Ice Field and calves into the lake along an ice front of 5 km length which sometimes impounds one lake branch, leading to episodic breakthroughs.
