Alaska


What a beautiful, sunny day in Juneau, Alaska.
We took a helicopter and landed on the Mendenhall Glacier, then hiked for an hour. It wasn't even that cold!


















Our guide holding on to Mick's belt so he doesn't slip into the moulin. The next shot is the result.



Deep Blue. Taking the shot of this Glacial Moulin was by far one of the most exciting shoots we’ve experienced. You can see the water rushing down the chute to a depth our guide estimated at 1,000 feet. You can see several chips of ice falling, caused by our cleats scuffing the ice as we were getting the picture.



This is a shot from the helicopter on the way to the glacier excursion.

photos

This photo of a deep blue crevasse was taken in Juneau, Alaska. We took a helicopter and landed on Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau, then hiked the glacier. Majestic glaciers act like filters that absorb red light, making the ice appear blue. The black deposits are years of sediment scraped up as the massive ice flows move across the land.
