Surprise Glacier Alaska

(Gary Randall) #1

Surprise Glacier Harriman Fjord, Prince William Sound near Whittier Alaska. This shot was taken on one of the days that we spent during my annual Alaska tour/workshop this last August. Alaska is incredible.

Pertinent technical details or techniques:

Nikon D810 - 70-200 VR II - Handheld - 105mm - 1/640 sec - f/8 - ISO 250
(If this is a composite, etc. please be honest with your techniques to help others learn)
This is a single Raw exposure adjusted in Lightroom.

I like how the 70-200mm lens has compressed the scene, thereby exaggerating the zig-zag flow of the glacier and making the mountain appear more formidable. A very dramatic image that really captures the essence of the Alaskan landscape.

I am curious to know why this glacier has been named “Surprise Glacier”.

Gary: Reminds me of the moody scenes we were treated to on our 2017 trip. I didn’t see this particular glacier so this is a nice treat. Love the color palette and the light and comp. :+1::+1:>=))>
