Oh my gosh. I could stare at this for hours. I just may.

Gorgeous. I love photo finish Fridays.

Hard for me to imagine a river of ice. I've never seen one up close. Future generations will miss these.

Bossy Betty, this is one of my favourite places. Maybe someday you'll get to see it up close and in person.

Laurita, it is a beautiful place. Glad you like my pics.

Ron, I hope you get a chance. It's sad this glacier is receding.

Wow!

Great shot, cousin. It surprises me how much that glacier has receded in our lifetime.

Haven't seen a glacier in person since high school, so i savor the pictures you post. Thank you.

Leah J. Utas said...

Well put, Hilary.

Cousin, it is appalling. I'm just glad there's still a glacier to see.

Messymimi, it is my pleasure.

Magnificent, shot!

i just can't say enough about how lucky you are to see such beautiful scenes of the mountains. Mountains are really one of my favourite subjects for my art.

Leah J. Utas said...

Thanks, David.

Redbush, I am blessed to live so close. I understand why they'd be a top subject for you. They're among my fave things to photograph.

Leah J. Utas said...

Thank you, Cousin.

I long to get there.

I'm sure it'll happen, MizFit. And when you do make sure to call so I can guide you.
