Artist’s Note:
This image of the Grand Pacific Glacier was shot during a cruise through Glacier Bay National Park in Alaska. The landscape there is so incredible, you feel as though you’re seeing the same world that existed thousands of years ago. When I first saw the Grand Pacific Glacier, I was surprised by how dark it looked, but I found out from the rangers that the ice is “black” because of all the dirt and debris that the glacier picks up as it recedes and thins.
