Portage Glacier Pool by mikewheels Portage Glacier Pool by mikewheels
Shooting Portage Glacier in the winter has become one of my favorite places to shoot. At the toe of the glacier there were several runoff streams and pools of blue water that gave great foreground to the glacier and mountains behind. This pool reminded me of the pools formed after rain in the desert southwest.

Nikon d90
18-105mm

That is what glacial ice looks like. The ice under the snow radiates a very blue hue and shows through the water on top. No color effects were added!

i'm wondering if i can use it for an assignment for school? i need to do a front cover for an annual report and would love to have this be showcased on the front! (i need artist's permission if i want to use photography other than my own. and i'm from the prairies.. we don't have glaciers.. or hills.. here!)

Nice capture... couldn't have been easy with all that snow reflecting light everywhere. Those blues are wild.
