Hubbard Glacier, Alaska

This glacier is huge, and the color is blue because all color is absorbed but blue! If it had been a sunnier day, it would have appeared all white! Interesting info at www.gurmam.org/Alaska/Hubbard.html.

The captain went around in this bay so we could see from all sides. He stopped the engines so we could the “calving” like thunder. I happened to have the video camera pointing at the exact spot it calved and also grabbed my digital. Exciting!

Part of glacier fell into the ocean with a loud swoosh, called calving.

The minty blue of the ice really makes the monochrome images pop out! Lovely.
