Lamplugh Glacier

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 7 January 2016 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Lamplugh Glacier is an 8-mile-long glacier located in Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve in Alaska. It leads north to its 1961 terminus in Johns Hopkins Inlet, 1.4 miles west of Ptarmigan Creek and 76 miles northwest of Hoonah. The glacier was named by Lawrence Martin of the U.S. Geological Survey around 1912 for English geologist George William Lamplugh (1859–1926), who visited Glacier Bay in 1884.

Lamplugh Glacier is roughly 160 feet high at the face, and about 3/4 mile wide. This tidewater glacier has advanced and receded significantly in the past century.

I loved this PoV that I captured as you can see how the glacier twists and turns as it approaches the Bay, as if it's slow moving lava.

franz from Baden, Austria

fantastic image once again! do you do anything to enhance colour and contrast?
what i like about glaciers is the moraines that were once on the sides but as glaciers merge move to the middle. and they do move like very slow lava ...

7 Jan 2016 7:15pm

@franz: Contrast had to be enhanced as it was a cloudy and rainy day. It was hard to make out the texture of the glacier before enhancing it.
