WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge this week is on the subject of H2O (water). Here’s my take on it:
Reflection in water: The native peoples of the Pacific Northwest carve beautiful images in wood and on totem poles. Many of their designs are symmetrical. Perhaps they were representing what the water looks like on a day like this.
For more pictures of this beautiful national monument, see my post Misty Fjords National Monument.
Nugget Falls is a river created by glacial runoff in the mountains. Nearby is Mendenhall Glacier.
Glaciers can appear blue due to the blue light on the spectrum which reflects back to us. But glaciers take on other colors as well – they may carry with them chunks of mountainsides, rendering the ice brown or black, as is the case with Margerie Glacier.
Stay tuned for upcoming posts on all these beautiful things!
