Photographer's Note

I did post an earlier photo of the Le ConteGlacier. Since I did the original post, I've seen Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth," and learned how much of th world depends on Glaciers for water. Now the size of that berg really struck me much more strongly. Since this glacier has been calving house-sized bergs very frequently for the two years that have passed since I visited, I had to check the activity level. As this is a very rainy area, life is not totally dependent on glacier water and they are still celebrating the glacier calving. At the time that I visited, the town had decided against having facilities for large cruise ships so the Alaska State Ferry was the best way to visit, although they do run excusions from nearby Wrangell where there is cruise ship dock.

I got a computer with PS CS2 on it. Since my last Processing program was Photoshop Essentials version 3; I've been spending more time practicing the exercises in the book on my old Alaska photos than taking pictures. I had discarded this one as too flat but a levels adjustment brought up a LOT more detail, even in a JPEG file. In keeping with Peter Boehringer's discussion on to PP or not PP, I think I'll post the unprocessed version in the file. This was taken before I had any understanding of polarizer filters so the processed version is much closer to what my eyes saw than the original.
