Hubbard Glacier Calving, Alaska 2004

It has been a little while since my last post because we just officially launched the Blog and wanted to let some readership settle in. I am extremely grateful that within the first week we have had more than 500 visitors to the Blog (not bad considering I’m not Charlie Sheen). I thank you for the support and will continue to post images that I hope you all enjoy.

To that end, today we have Hubbard Glacier Calving. Several years ago I had the opportunity to visit The Great Land,  Alaska. Cruising the Inner Passage, we eventually approached the Hubbard Glacier. Simply seeing a Glacier up close is enough to stir the soul. On this particular day we witnessed a spectacular show as the glacier calved, sending huge pieces of ice crashing into the sea.

To many, this image will serve as a reminder of the alarming effect of global warming. Hopefully it will also serve as a reminder for all of us to do our part to protect the planet.

For me, in addition to the inherent conservation message the image represents, it memorialzes a spectacular life experience. My photographic goal was to capture the randomly falling chunks of ice as they hit the frigid water. The sight and sound (akin to that of a lightning/thunder-storm) as the ice cracked off the glacier, is something I will never forget.

Here’s hoping that together, we make the changes necessary to protect the Earth, so that wild places such as this survive for future generations.

    Your work is absolutely captivating and it’s wonderful to be able to “tune in” to the behind the scenes, or as you put it, “behind the glass”
