Photographer's Note

I was standing at Eagles’ Roost Park looking for eagles when I realized that those sea gulls following the fishing boat were eagles. The boat is entering Fredrick Sound as it leaves Petersburg Harbor on Mitkoff Island. Above you can see the LeConte Glacier just below Devil's Thumb. This peak is 9,077’/2767m and marks the Canada-US border. Its North face is a sheer cliff of 7,000/2133m feet. LeConte Glacier's ice extends up to 700’/213m below the surface of LeConte Bay. This leads to submarine calving, producing what are locally called shooters, icebergs that rise rapidly to the surface as far out as 1000’/305m from the glacier's face. Source
The Le Conte Glacier is one of many Glaciers spilling out of the Stikene Ice Field. The Stikine Icefield is 2900 square miles and extends 120 miles. This website shows an aerial photo of the Le Conte Glacier and part of the Stikene Ice Field. The Le Conte Glacier is the southernmost active tidewater glacier in the northern hemisphere.
I’ll also post a topo map of the Glacier in the WS.

As to my CS2 Lesson of the day, I used the pen tool to select the light post, so I could work with paths. I was really unsuccessful in understanding paths. I finally used the healing brush on my selection. Photo prior to CS2 work, See WS for details.

However, Kari, very kindly did a WS on the Wrangell Narrows photo. His tip about using the Highlight selection tool was so useful that at least I learned something. I know just the photo to try the technique on. Perhaps later I’ll get back to paths.

Thank you, Steve for explaining how to save photos so EXIF data isn't lost.
