A tear from Planet Earth

This is one of the "pictures of the noughties" chosen by Odd Andersen, Regional Photo Editor of Associated Press. It shows an iceberg melting in Kulusuk Bay, Greenland.

"This is a beautiful image, well composed and shows probably the biggest single issue that faced us all in the last decade and will stay with us for the next," said Andersen.

To me, this picture shows Planet Earth shedding a tear, especially after the much awaited Copenhagen climate summit had so little to deliver in terms of getting the nations coming to some form of agreement on carbon emissions.
