Landscape and Panoramic Photography

Textured Bare Glacier

The east side of the continental divide near Fremont Peak in the Wind River Range is covered in receding glaciers.  After climbing the scree and talus on the west side of Indian Pass, I descended the east side on glaciers.  I turned around as I stepped onto the moraine field and took this photo of the cracked bare ice at the base of the glacier.  Much like in my previous posting, I desaturated the color in the photograph to emphasize the texture in the photograph.  However, I left a little color in the bare ice to emphasize the subtle blue of the bare ice.
