Thanks Everyone Very Much!! Jeff #7917094

frank w. degenhardt level-deluxe 9/5/2009 6:34:28 AM

Jeff- This is one of those sights that are both eerie and beautiful at the same time. I love both versions and while I am a big fan of black and white, I must admit I loved the blue toned one a bit better. The glow of the light is gorgeous, the combination of water and snowy ice along with the rock formation is so beautiful and breathtaking. Fantastic camera work with outstanding compositon, a rare beauty my friend.
Have yourself a fabulous weekend, enjoy the holidays, be safe. #7917405

Mitch Spence level-deluxe 9/6/2009 9:24:22 AM

An imposing sight, Jeff. I didn't get to see this when I was there and wish I had. I like both images, but I think I prefer the color version. There's something about the blue tones of the ice in Alaska that adds that just right feeling of chill. #7919814

Marijana Fajgl level-deluxe 9/6/2009 1:31:15 PM

Wonderful captures, Jeff! I love them both. #7920328

Stunning image of the glacier,Jeff...
You have brought great memories back,the train ride and the quaint little town to get to the boat ride to take me to the Kenai peninsula...The awesome and incredible views and the wildlife...What a greaty trip that was..
Beautilly capture and presented in the two versions of this amazing place...
Thanks Jeff for the flash back.. #7922160

Mike F. Anderson level-deluxe 9/7/2009 11:32:52 AM

Laura E. Swan level-deluxe 9/9/2009 11:55:31 PM

WOW! What a strange feeling the B&W gave being closed in...but I really like it a lot. Both of them, Jeff. They have a wonderful drama about them. Mystique...Like I want to be there but am glad I am not.

Did I explain that very well? Humm...

Very National Geographic anyway. GREAT JOB!

In 1964, on Good Friday, a earthquake caused the land to drop between 6 and 12 feet (Image captured in the late evening in August of 1988 - Negative scanned and processed with PSE7) A B&W version is in the Comments section.
