These images were taken in winter 2014. The Turnagain Arm has massive amount of ice that is crushed by the bay’s high tides. Five-foot-high bore tides travel into the inlet at 5-6 miles per hours. The mountains on both sides of Turnagain Arm are rugged with many trails to enjoy. Some of the images were taken along Portage Glacier Road.
I used a surveyor tripod adapted for photography to take these images with my Nikon 70-200mm f/4 telephoto lens. The ice was moving so I used the fastest exposure speed I could with an ISO 100. I try to use apertures of f/8 or f/11 for landscapes. I will use a f-stop of f/16 if needed for depth of field. Apertures smaller than f/16 can reduce image sharpness due to light diffraction.
