After a few hours drive, we arrived to Byron glacier outside of Whittier AK, we took the state paved trail to its end and decided we needed to get closer to this beauty, so off onto the rocky mountainside to get to this spot. This is my buddy taking a break to taste the fresh glacial waters of Alaska. Oh, and yes.. We know about beaver fever. This taste was worth the risk!
A successful picture helps place the viewer in a scene. Here, the photographer's choice of a low camera angle helps deliver that feeling. The photographer is squatting in the stream, at the end of a hike at the end of the road bringing me along on the journey.
