Coastal Alaska

Good weather when flying down the coast of Alaska, on the way to Vancouver from Beijing. My first photographic survey of the coastal glaciers there in about 20 years.

Glacier, trailing to the upper right.

Mount McKinley (Denali to Alaskans) in the distance.

Glacier feeding into a lake, with another at top.

Glaciers cascading into a fjord.


If this is the one I think it is, it has receded quite a lot in the last twenty years. Most of the water in the foreground was under glacial ice the last time I photographed it.

All of these were photographed digitally, and the colours were rebalanced afterwards. The original shots are too blue. The brownish shading on the left is a reflection from the edge of the window.
