Cruising Alaska Off-Season — Endicott Arm; The Sunny Version


Oh, what a difference a week makes. We’re back in Endicott Arm, headed for Dawes Glacier, but this time we’re under bright sun and blue skies. Which, in my book, makes for much better photography in most cases, unless you’re going for mood. For instance, just compare the shot above with this one from Fun Photo Friday I posted on December 17:

The rich blues of Dawes Glacier came through much more intensely as well:

Now let me leave you with these three sunlit landscapes:
