Every where you look in Alaska is evidence of the world of ice that once existed and still does in places. Many rivers such as the Koyukuk carry loads of glacial silt which cause the rivers to appear milky in color. This silt is deposited throughout the rivers range causing the river to braid and constantly change course.

You are a very lucky man Ned! ;-)
To have had the privilege to see such a landscape... And also to be able to make such a perfect image of it!
Colours, composition, framing, all very good!

Absolutely stunning Ned. Amazing scenery, those Alaskan colours are amazing. Excellent sharpness to the image too. My only wish would have been to get the shot from a slightly higher perspective to really show the run of the river.
But I guess you would need a helicopter for that!
