Penitentes and Glacial Ice on Kilimanjaro

potd_tz_kilimanjaro_237

Heading way back into the archives, this photo is from March of 1999. Taken near the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro (19,340′) in Tanzania, you’re looking at penitentes and ice layers in the margin of the Southern Icefield. You can also see the summit of Mount Meru at 14,980′ on the horizon.

Photo Details: I think this was taken with an Olympus Stylus Epic point and shoot with Fuji slide film.
