Cold Face
Photo By Linsey Strickland

  • Title: Cold Face
  • State/Province/Region: Alaska
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Mendenhall Glacier
  • Nearest Town: Juneau
  • Brief Directions: From the Juneau airport take the Glacier highway to the Mendenhall glacier visitor center. Make sure of the ice stability and walk the mile across the frozen ice to the glaicer face.
  • Notes: The frozen lake ice stability is always a concern and one not taken lightly. Approach the face with due caution. Better to use a telephoto than get to close to danger as the ice is always unpredictable. Wear good warm layerd clothes and ice cleats if the lake ice is bare.
  • Best Season: Winter
  • Description: Walking across the froaen Mendenhall lake to the Glacier Face just at sundown on a sub zero day caught the late light decending. A very cold Day at the glacier face
  • Gear: Tripod and Wide Angle Lens

    Thanks Alena and David! I took a lot of shots of this landscape, but placing a person in the shot imparted the sense of amazement and exhilaration I was trying to capture. Merry Christmas!

    Exhilarating photo Laura! Being in the foreground gives the viewer the sense of how vast and spectacular our earth is. The image also allows for the outdoor photographer to reflect back on times...
