As global warming increases, alpine glaciers receive less and less snow inflow, thus, with the flow of ice still present, the glacier breaks with not enough new ice support and gets more crevasses. Here Mittelbergferner seen from Linker Fernerkogel, Ötztal Alps, August 2009.

A very interesting story and the photo illustrates it, but without your narrative the photo doesn't say anything at all. I've seen text incorporated into such a photo and maybe that can work for you. The image lacks any sense of scale and technically parts are blown out and other parts are too deep in shadow. It just doesn't work as presented.
