I’ve always liked this photo. I guess it’s because I was there. Haha! I have SO many photos from Alaska that I’m very happy to be revisiting to share its beauty. If only my photos did it justice! This was taken on a glacier boat tour out of Seward. Let me just say, by the time we got to this glacier, it was cold. These glaciers basically create their own atmosphere and it was like being trapped inside a sub-zero freezer. My fingers were frozen, I had on thermals, jeans, sweaters, a  knit cap, scarf, gloves, and my big fleece lined, water-proof jacket. I was shaking but not stirred. 😉 Then again, I’m from Texas and 70 degrees is cold to me. While stopped here, we actually got to hear some of the ice crack off…it sounded like thunder–amazing stuff and I don’t even think it was that big of a piece.

Cropped down the image resolution isn’t the best and it’s not very sharp, but I did the best I could with my Konica. There’s also some chromatic aberration going on that I did the best I could with, but I tell you, I really loved this camera because it was when I first started playing with aperture, shutter speeds, and ISO. The Konica is what truly sparked my love of photography and made me want to get a better, faster camera.

How about you? How did you grow your photography love?

  1. It’s beautiful. It was really something to see the different hues of blues and greens. All I know is, I wouldn’t want to be in that water! Brrr…
