Photo Finish Friday - Haunting Blue



This is Skua Glacier in the Chilean fjords. Our cruise ship went in very close to it, closer apparently than any other cruise ship had gone.
The ice formations looked like living crystals creatures. I thought I'd ventured to a cold alien world of eerie, haunting beauty.
Please click to enlarge the photo for the full effect.

OMG - that is gorgeous! Especially when you enlarge it - you're exactly right, it's like something alien. And cold.

Thanks, df Bag Lady. It was such a cold, beautiful spot. It's one of my favourite pics.

That is so beautiful and such a difference from the glaciers we see in the Rockies.

Leah J. Utas said...

I know Ill be a traveler again when the Toddler is older but some days that feels eons away.

That truly is lovely, Leah. I hope it's nothing the Tidy Bowl man had a part in. ;)

Wow, absolutely breathtaking, especially enlarged. I studied it for a long time, marveling at the incredible patterns.

Leah J. Utas said...

Thanks, TL. They really are something, aren't they?

Barbara Martin said...

Did it crack and growl while you were there, Leah?

Leah J. Utas said...

No. We were so disappointed...
