Cruising Alaska Off-Season — Where Dawes Meets Endicott Arm

Up until now the views I’ve presented of Endicott Arm and Dawes Glacier were taken on Cruise 1 on 29 September of this year. That was our misty, cloudy visit. We returned on Cruise 2 exactly seven days later, and the weather could not have been more cooperative. For instance, the photograph above was taken on Ovation of the Seas’ transit of Endicott at 8:26 a.m. on 6 October. Misty pictures can be fun, but sunny days present my preferred canvas. So, let’s compare and contrast, beginning with these three shots taken on 29 September:

Now let’s see what a difference some cloud-free sunlight makes with this much more dynamic photo gallery/slide show compared to yesterday’s version:
