A woman climbs the ice on Rhone Glacier, partially covered with protective blankets, near Gletsch, Switzerland, July 14th 2015. Every summer the glacier is covered with giant white blankets to minimise the effects of the sun melting the ice. A second heat wave is forecast to hit Switzerland in the next few days.
