“This image was made from the deck of a cruise ship in Glacier Bay National Park, handheld with an image stabilized lens,” explains Minnick. “I zoomed in to isolate the cloud-wreathed snow-covered mountains with the glacier flowing down to the bay in the foreground. I felt this telephoto perspective would be more impactful for this scene than a wide angle.”
Canon 40D, Canon 70-200mm F4 IS L lens at 160mm. Exposure: 1/160sec., f/8, ISO 400.
