We were in Juneau on Mother's Day, the 11th of May and oh my, what a day it was! The highlight of our trip was definitely the helicopter flight we did from Juneau that took us over four glaciers before landing on one and having a 20 minute walk-around - very carefully.....ravines & crevasses all over the place where you could easily fall hundreds of feet to an icy death.....oooooooooo......... The scenery was spectacular, as seen by my paltry little digital snaps below. Thank goodness my memory in my own head has a much better capacity for replicating the awesome sights much more effectively than any camera will do.
Like I said before, the camera doesn't do it justice, I must've taken at least 100 photo's of the glaciers and surrounds while up in the helicopter.
Check out the colour of this blue!!! This was absolutely amazing, the wonderful blue colour deep down in the crevasses was spectacular. This is me standing as close as I could get to the edge and taking the picture straight down. Next picture is a little stream on the glacier, the crusty looking black stuff on top of the ice is just dirt, it's actually very crusty and crunchy to walk on.
Now for the free art give-away....if you want to leave me a comment on this post to win, I'll do a draw on Monday 7th July and you can choose from either of the pieces below. These 2 pieces are both canvasses, 5" x 7" (13cm x 18cm) and it will come with a little easel to stand on.
Important: please remember to leave an email address in your post so I can contact you and remember to check back on Monday 7th July to see who this goes to.
Hmmm....maybe no-one will leave a post now as these pics are crap!!! The green one says "In all things it is better to hope than to despair" and the orange/gold one says "In life, as in art, the beautiful moves in curves". Fingers and toes crossed that blogger will let my pictures be clickable so you can enlarge them to see details.
Thank you for persevering with me this far, did I not say it was a mega-post! lol
