Aug 22, Receding

Receding Glacier
Paradise Glacier, Mt. Rainier National Park.

Not very long ago, at the end of the Paradise Glacier trail, as you can imagine, there was the glacier. And misterious ice caves. Now they are all gone. Only patches of snow fields. I could not carry my tripod that far on the volcanic ash soaked with icy water to reach it.

I treat the receding glacier more seriously than my receding hairline. Some may argue that is it not our fault, and there is no dire consequences. But if there is only marginal link, there is no chance to regret.

Nevertheless, I had a very good time take the images of the majestic mountains in IR (as well as my sunrise at Reflection Lake and Sunrise parking lot.

(All images were taken with a converted camera with a standard IR filter. A patch of snow under the sun was used as whitebalance. The images were converted to BW with photoshop.)
