Day 207: Something Beautiful—Shadowing Glaciers

Something Beautiful is a self-imposed initiative to find a visual feast for each day of a year.

Homer, Alaska. 4pm. We have passed villages settled by the Russians and two volcanoes that sit in state along the Chigmit Mountain Range. A brief stop in Ninilchik for rock picking in the presence of Mount Iliamna. Past aquamarine rivers, fields of fireweed, pompous cow parsnip.

The Kenai Range lies across Kachemak Bay. Last night around 9pm it was the glaciers and me. Shot from the Homer Spit, a gravel strip that juts into the bay. Awe inspiring is too pathetically cliche. The Italian is better—incutere timore. The colors are like nowhere I’ve seen. Unbelievable blues.
