Light Painted Ice

Ice Chest

In this photo from a very rewarding recent trip to the end of the West Glacier Trail, the thin dusting of snow has added to the glacier’s ability to reflect all the colors of the light it’s bathed in. Early in the evening (at least by November in Alaska standards), the atmosphere is only beginning to tint the direct sunlight, and the mix of warm and cool lead to a rainbow of pastels in this portion of ice. Hopefully I’ll find time to share more of the trip’s photos over the remainder of this week.
