Warning blog followers….hubby and I just returned from a belated 15th anniversary trip to Alaska. You are going to be subjected to a stream “northern” pictures for a while.
This photo is a close up of an iceberg that calved from the Sawyer Glacier in Tracy Arm Fjord near Juneau, Alaska. The blue color is the result of the extreme pressure and weight of the glacier. The ice is compressed so much that is removes all air bubbles and appears blue to our eyes.
