Glacier Bay Alaska

I’ve gotten an opportunity to go to Alaska, not a photo job but with enough time to take a few shots as we go along.  Yesterday I was in Glacier Bay on an absolutely unbelievably clear day.  It started out a bit cloudy but cleared when we were actually in the bay.

Here was sunrise as we approached the Icy Straits.

There was relatively heavy sea fog as the sun rose.  We followed another ship (Princess Line) into the fog.

That ship actually disappeared into the low fog ahead of it and we followed a mile or two behind.  As we passed the strait though the fog lifted to a clear blue sky.  This is Marjorie Glacier the mountains behind it are called the Fairweather Range.  Mount Fairweather is over 15,000 feet high.

About birds n' bugs

Retired, living in SW Florida and spending my time at nature photography in my local area. I volunteer with a couple of local organizations to help my adopted home town. Travelling is now by airplane and car instead of a sailboat but happy anyway.
