College Fjord, Alaska, USA. The terminus of College Fjord is ringed with glaciers, each named for eastern US colleges by the explorers. (Many of the names were Ivy League colleges, though the explorers gleefully left Princeton out of the naming.) On the left are Vassar, Bryn Mawr, Smith, Radcliffe, and Harvard Glaciers, up the 'small' channel on the right is the Yale Glacier, not visible in this photo. The ice fields that feed the glaciers are massive, situated among mountains as tall as 15,000 feet. The masses of ice produce an abundance of clouds and breezes flow off the mountains to the fjord. The Harvard Glacier is 1.5 miles wide, 18 miles long, and over 200 feet high at the face. (EXIF: 70mm, 1/1250 sec, f/8.0, ISO 200) Enjoy!

This one looks to have been done with a slight bit of HDR or Topaz or something like that. Whatever you did, it's another gorgeous image, Thad.

This may be my favorite yet of this series. It looks so crisp and icy. The silvery blue water is very beautiful. Nicely done!

Yet another breathtaking shot of the glaciers of Alaska, Thad. The clouds seem awfully cooperative on this one. Some blue skies and some of the clouds hovering at the mountain peaks. Your narratives have been very helpful since I'm taking my citizenship test next week.

I just adored Alaska and the Fjords. I often wondered if these unforgiving places were God forsaken or if God would choose to live there.Thank you for this outstanding dramatic pic.

Some people have Gurus, I have my camera. Through the cam lenses I have learnt to deeply perceive life, not only to see, but to look at all expressions of nature, becoming able to read the poetry of the flowers, receiving the embrace of the trees and flying above the clouds without wings! - Susie Sun
