The Aialik Glacier in Kenia Fjords National Part is the bluest of the glaciers that I saw in Alaska. This glacier is called a tidewater glacier, because it terminates in the Aialik Bay.
I especially like the blue tones and the spires of ice that form as the glacier decays.
No tweaking was done, except to resize and sharpen for TE.

Lorsque le ciel est couvert, il ne faut pas oublier de régler la balance des blancs, mais pour cette photo, après avoir effectué une correction test, j'ai remarqué que l'image perd du bleu et fait apparaitre la couleur du sable qui recouvre le glacier.
Donc la photo est meilleure sans corrections.
J'ai effectué un WS avec un commentaire.
When the sky is covered, we should not forget to regulate the white balance, but for this picture, after having carried out a correction test, I noticed that the image loses blue and emphasizes the color of the sand which covers the glacier. Thus the photograph is better without corrections. I make a WS with a comment.

I think what makes this work is that the ice isn't lit by sunlight, thereby your exposure is not thrown off by strong reflections. The blues in the ice are quite spectacular, but I especially love the contrast with the more delicate blues of the sky behind. This really makes your picture special and original.
