I was organizing some photos from a vacation last August and this one caught my eye after being ignored the first few times through the pile. It was taken at the foot of the Sawyer Glacier in southeast Alaska. The original version of the photo was much flatter with the whites decidedly skewed toward blue and little contrast. With a little bit of work, it has turned into one of my favorite pictures. The seal’s expression is so perfect and the reflection of the ice, glacier, and seal reflect the quiet and peaceful area.
