Exit Glacier is a 15-minute drive out of Seward, Alaska. I visited the glacier in the 1980s and it has receded a great distance from what I remember. It used to be close the highway, easily accessible and you could explore many large ice caves. Now it is a several mile walk to the foot of the glacier. The ice field looks like a large sliver of ice compared to the glacier 45 years ago. People that say human activities are not polluting our home and warming our atmosphere are deceiving themselves. This way of thinking will leave future generations with the responsibility of reversing global warming and restoring dead seas.

I used my Nikon D810 and Nikon 16-35mm f/4 zoom lens with a tripod to take these images. I used an f/11 aperture for depth of field with exposures of 1/5 to 1/20 a second. I used a wireless remote and a delayed exposure setting to keep camera shake to a minimum. Cloudy skies keep exposures and f-stops consistence.
