20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Photographer on the Knik Glacier

It was the Labor Day weekend and most of the local folks had taken their last outing of Summer. And it was getting too cold for tourists. So, we did find 2 vacancies on a helicopter tour to the top of the Knik Glacier, near Palmer Alaska. We, of course, joined the group. The blue waters on top of the Knik Glacier in Alaska, looked so unreal, that I thought it needed a person to show its scale and contrast. Fortunately, there was not a lack of people around, from our helicopter plus another that was close by.
