Melting ice forms an isolated blue oasis in among the Alps as temperatures soar in Europe.  Photographer Franco Cappellari spotted the eye-catching glacier water as he flew over Mont Blanc, the highest peak in the 745-mile mountain range.<br />
<br />
Even at 9,842ft above sea-level, the temperature reached 10C, and the ice on top of the 15,780ft mountain, named because it is constantly covered in snow and ice, started to melt.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
