Glacier Calving

These two shots are from our Alaska trip last summer. At the end of the glacier the falling ice is called calving. You will notice that one shot catches the ice in mid-air and the other when it enters the water. If you are close enough to the glacier you can hear the noise of it breaking and crashing into the water. It was a unique experience. It is hard to tell from the shots but the height of the glacier is at least 300 feet. Very difficult to get a sense of size but it is truly gigantic.
