Thanks! I replaced the earlier upload from a couple of days ago since I found that it had a little bit of a blue-green cast.

Spectacular Inge!! The clarity is amazing. Did you use any special post-processing techniques to get this clarity? It is so smooth with absolutely no noise at all. Beautiful job!

Anne, the camera was on tripod at the lowest ISO (100) so there shouldn't be any noise at all from this camera (Canon 5D Mk2). I did take a couple of different exposures and manually blended/masked in a darker one to hold back the exposure on the mountain glaciers. Other than that, no special techniques; just being at the right place at the right time, and using a good camera+lens and tripod ;-)

Wow. Thanks for the info Inge! I use a Canon XSI (45d) so I dont expect to get the same quality from it. Still investing in lenses too :) Your image is truly spectacular! Thanks for sharing.

Anne, you should be able get very high quality image from your camera too. I think the most important things for these types of landscape shots are:
- Shoot at the right time of day, i.e. early or late, for nice soft light
- Use the lowest ISO the camera offers
- Use a tripod
- Use a good lens
