Ruth Glacier, Alaska

Ruth Glacier, Alaska

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.

The image was scanned from a 35mm Kodachrome slide.
