See the Tiny People?? Mendenhall Glacier (#2 of 2)

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 1 March 2016 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

I love this shot as the people in the foreground (bottom) really help establish the grand sense of scale for Mendenhall Glacier. Where these people are standing is from where yesterday's photo was captured.

For more information on Mendenhall Glacier, read yesterday's post.

Photo captured September 16, 2015.

NIKON D7000 1/30 second F/19.0 ISO 1250 72 mm (35mm equiv.)

Why are tiny people allowed on the glacier? There should be a ruler at the entrance that says "you have to be this tall..."
