Photographer's Note

The glacier formation at Glacier Bay is off the John Hopkins Strait, Alaska. The snow that first created the frozen mountains of Glacier Bay fell thousands of years ago. It is a magnificent remnants of the ice age, 16 huge glaciers converged here. There are still giant chunks of ice breaking away from the face of this glacier and plunging into the deep blue water as newly formed icebergs. Lush, emerald forest of spruce, alder and cottonwood fringe Glacier Bay, and wildlife is found here in great abundance, from humpback whales to bald eagles. The color of the glacier is deep blue-green. It gets lighter and more luminous under the sun.

I took this photo before I have known about TE and TL. It was the time before I got hooked in digital photography. I took this photo with my old Minolta camera. I do not have any record of the ECIF and no negatives to scan. I scanned the old print from my album. From the scanned print I did the usual processing for a digital negative.

I added another picture in the WORKSHOP to show the scale of this glacier.

PP Work: Adjusted levels control; Adjusted saturation; Sharpen; Crop; Frame; Reduce size for posting.
