Seals near Margerie Glacier, Alaska

January 12, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

On our cruise we were taken to Glacier Bay so that we could see glaciers.  There are two that the cruise ships go to, we went to Margerie Glacier.  We took our time getting there.  The boat went fairly slowly, and as we got closer to the glacier we went even slower.  Definitely a "no wake" zone.  The mountains were beautiful and water was an emerald green, apparently from the minerals in the glaciers.  

As we got closer we noticed ice in the water.  We didn't think much of it at first but then we noticed that there were seals on the ice floats.  This photo shows two seals on an ice float.  It is zoomed in all the way with a 500 mm lens.  I also cropped the photo in very closely after looking at it in Lightroom.  From the cruise ship, they looked far away and very small.  A contrast to the glacier which looked huge in front of us.

Hope you enjoy the photos!
