Margerie Glacier, by Steve Hirsch

Glacier Bay in Alaska is accessible by private boat and cruise ships. The access daily is limited but when you arrive if your lucky on a clear day it is so beautiful. The Margerie glacier is 21 miles long and with global warming concerns is shrinking every minute. I was accompanied with my whole family on the occasion of my parents 50th Anniversary and truly enjoyed photographing Alaska.

    Raros espacios incomprendidos por muchas personas que solo ven un montón de hielo inexpresivo sin percibir que es parte de un maravilloso capítulo de la lenta evolución de que que somos participantes en la búsqueda de la humanidad posible en este planeta Tierra,
