|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|We winessed a couple of avalanches during the days, as well as hearing some glacial calving at night. You can see a fresh breakage in a drift right above where my wife is standing. We witnessed two avalanches coming down from this location. You can see the debris field to her left.|
The avalanches from the winter's snowpack sounds impressive enough, but a glacial calving sounds more like rockfall, as glacial ice is much harder.

How did I get two photos behind on your posts? ha ha
Wonderful shot showing the immensity of these mountains.
I still can't get over the snow and ice in June!

A pretty awesome sight to see,and hear.A very good shot showing the craggy snow and ice covered mountain side.The type of shot you would see in a tourist magazine or website.Nicely composed with very good POV.TFS
I really like the touch of humanity you have added to this shot. It gives us a better spacial sense of the area and reminds us that man and nature, including mans and womans creations are both an intrusion at times, which is why it is said to take only pictures and leave only footprints I suppose.
