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.

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.
