There were a few ice-sculptures on board the cruise ship, but nothing of this magnitude!
The ice forms look like giant gems.
Even though they're stunning in their natural beauty,
I couldn't resist "enhancing" them a little in Photoshop for emphasis.
It's fascinating that the ice exists right next to a patch of green still lingering on the lower mountain slope.
This bottom layers of the glacier, with their reflection in the calm water below,
suggest the stylized eye of a killer whale, such as seen in Native carvings.
Pulling away for a wider view, we see that the form really does resemble an Orca...
or is it just me who thinks this?
It was a rare privilege to have seen this amazing natural phenomenon.
An experience I will always cherish.
