This panorama is very instructiv and impressiv. Only the right end is redundantly.
Can You give us any explanations to the glaciers.

I added the name of the glacier as label.

That is the Kongsbreen Glacier. During winter all the Kongsfjord is iced, the pack it start to melt during spring. All the glaciers here are reducing the dimensions, I was to a seminar few days ago where an English researcher told they measured 10m of reduction, yearly.
