This photograph was taken in a fjord near Skagway, Alaska while on a cruise up the inner passage. The colors and striations on the ice, especially on the glaciers (which you can see in my gallery “Ice“) were simply breathtaking. This little iceberg was no exception. The deep teal of the water and the smokiness of the ice made the ice look like an uncut gemstone. The reflection on the lower left side of the ice gives it some depth, and alludes to the ninety-percent of the “jewel” which remains unseen under the water.
