This is a shot of Ruth Glacier in the Alaska Range on the approach to Denali. The glacier stretches 50-100 miles into the distance, a great superhighway of rock and ice.
I shot it in the 1980s from a small airplane. I have a feeling that it would seem considerably diminished today.
I remember the feeling of the wind whipping through my hair, as I enjoyed the incredible landscape—the visual equivalent of heroic symphonic music.
