Very nice...I love the soothingcolors. What is that on the right? I can see the reflection on the water but can not tell what it is!

Thanks.

On the right? It's a mountain.

In case there is someone here from Alaska, the proper spelling of the glacier is Mendenhall not Mindenhall.

When I was in Alaska a few years ago I saw that glacier from a distance. I was on a tour bus headed for a jet boat excursion. After it was over, I would have preferred to spend the time going to see the glacier. I remember the bus driver pointing it out as we had a brief glimpse of it.

I am trying to recall whether that glacier was just outside of Juneau or Ketchikan. I am fairly sure it is not Skagway!

Nice shot though I think I would crop out some of the mountain on the right.

Thanks for the explanation, Puck. I agree with Cal about the mountain.Either crop some or leave more of it!

This glacier is near Juneau. Here's a closer picture of the mountain and stream on the right. We could call this "Fast Water / Still Water".

Yes a crop might help the first picture but I sort of like it the way it is.
