Hubbard Glacier 1a
Photo By Tom Mckelvey

  • Title: Hubbard Glacier 1a
  • State/Province/Region: Alaska
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Wrangell-St. Elias National Park
  • Description: 1/800th sec. @ f5, ISO 800, 238mm (357mm equiv). Hubbard Glacier with the 10,000’ Mt. Seattle breaking thru the clouds in the background. Shot while approaching the glacier from a good distance away, in August of 2012. I wanted to get a shot that would highlight the glacier before the light and clouds changed. The shot was not possible with my normal landscape setup, a full frame with a 24-70 lens, so I switched to my D300’s that I had on deck with my long lens and converter on it, just incase we encountered any whales. Having a longer zoom lens on a camera with a 1.5x crop factor along with a converter allowed me to frame the scene the way I wanted to and when I needed it. By the time we reached the glacier the scene had changed considerably so I’m glad I had my “wildlife setup” on hand.
  • Gear: Nikon D300s w/70-200mm Lens & 1.4x ext.

    Thank you Alena, appreciate your comments as always! This is one of my favorite places, with such amazing geology. Someone also pointed out the repeating triangular shapes, which is probably also...

    Very nice set of Owens Valley Laura! I really like the balance of the rocks in foreground, and light/dark contrast between mountain and hills!
