The Volendam cruised Glacier Bay National Park for one day. If not on a cruise ship, people take small tour boats to see white mountains and blue glaciers, sometimes they are quite choppy. Because beginning of the June is still early in the season, floating ice prevented cruise ship for getting closer. This image was taken from very far distance. The condition was not ideal for a good picture.
In the Glacier Bay, there are16 major tidewater glaciers (those that go all the way to the water) and 30 valley or alpine glaciers (those that compress between two hills but donít extend all the way to the water). If you take a look closely, you will see a glacier at the base of the snowy mountain.

Fine water view of Glacier Bay, the light blue glacier entering the ocean, and a glimpse of the majestic peak above the clouds which could be the Matterhorn's cousin look alike.
Cruise boating here would be enjoyable, and kayaking in the Bay would be even more fun.
Thanks for sharing,

The snowy peak rising out of the clouds is a magnificent view. The blue colour of the glacier is a bonus of this picture.
Was it very cold when you were there ?
Best regards, Paul

Looks freezing!! You're right about the weather but it's beyond our control, you did your utmost indeed. It's an amazing sight - seacape of glacier in such scenic environment and the sense of perspective and depth with the blueish glaciers really draws attention into the whole capture. The lovely low clouds and the peak give the extra visual interest. To sum up, this shot presents an enchanting view possibly once in a life time experience for you. A real pleasure to view! Great photo effort, Congrats.

It seem all is frozen with a good mix of blue and white with the glacier Bay at the back
Must be great to enjoy the views from a ship
Well done, regards

during my absence on TE you posted couple of very interesting pictures. I like this one very much for its severe beauty and simple composition which goes with the whole mood of the photo. Amazing view and well executed picture. Good contrast and light management, pretty and natural colors.
Thanks for sharing
