What can you say about Glacier Bay National Park that probably hasn't been said before? The Alaskan Coast is one of the most scenic areas in the world and the park is, in my opinion, the best spot. Most people visiting the park can only view it from a cruise ship deck, as we did. Cruising is not the most ideal way to photograph landscapes as you can't control the time you get there and oftentimes you find yourself shooting in midday harsh sunlight. If you are lucky, you get there before dawn or late evening when you get the great golden hour light. That rarely happens. For this photo, I wasn't able to shoot the park at these ideal times but got better light than I expected. We arrived in late afternoon and had the sun behind me. This allowed for great color in the water and a clear view of the mountains.
