Rockbiter

As that memorable character of the “The Neverending Story”, Rockbiter, the one who devours the mountain rocks, an iceberg slowly navigates along the Upsala Glacier channel, in the south of Patagonia Argentina. But his sad eyes hide the hard reality of global warming. High temperatures are severely affecting the natural setback of all the glaciers in the area, and nothing is as before, when thousands of years ago, he saw in those mountains a white paradise.
