A moraine.
Too much hormone treated meat.
Too much Monsanto veggies.
Too old and outdated constitution.
A crazy problem, as you Yanks use to say......

I think we ruled out your common morraines (ground, abelation, medial, etc.) already. Based on my personal encounters with the following critters, we can also rule out: pongos, varves, sun cups, rock flour, debris cones, Roche Moutonnees, drumlins, a furrow, a kame, a kettle, or a till. And it is clearly not a nunatak.

I guess that only leaves an esker?

The difference from what you have and what this is depends on how straight one is.

And I thought It was a Terminal Moraine, like the Giant's Wall in Norway, at least according to the wiki...

No, a lot of time spent flying over Canada, where one navigates from one glacier remain to the next. Which leads to this. What is this, and how is it related to a glacier? For bonus points, what is its name, and name the famous person whose house appears in the photo.

Angela, no and no.

John, yes.

Hint - concentrate on the little blue blob, and the different coloured vegetable matter around it.

Time for another clue. This feature is only about 15,000 years old, and will be gone in another 10,000 years. A blink of the eye, geologically.
