Denver Photographer James Balog -"Extreme Ice" - TV Program

From the Denver Post,

With 27 cameras positioned in remote locations around the world, taking pictures every hour and uploading them to computers, Colorado photographer James Balog finds the forensic evidence of what's happening simply jaw-dropping.

TV viewers will find the images spectacular, too.

"Extreme Ice" is a stunning work, documenting Balog's project, the largest photographic study of the world's glaciers ever attempted. Mountain glaciers and big ice sheets are disappearing, simple as that, and Balog set out to create a photo archive of the big melt.
It's as if the tug of gravity has been captured in its first crashing, candid close-up. And now it's coming to TV.

"Extreme Ice," a NOVA/National Geographic collaboration, premieres tonight at 7 on KRMA-Channel 6.
