Face of Johns Hopkins Glacier

Ragged face of the Johns Hopkins Glacier in Glacier Bay, Alaska. 

The Johns Hopkins Glacier, the only advancing glacier in Glacier Bay, is located off the main fjord in the 9 mile long Johns Hopkins Inlet.  It is about a mile wide, about 250 high from the water, 12 miles deep and can not be approached any closer than 2 miles due to highly active calving.  It is markedly more intensely blue and its face seems more irregular than the other glaciers in Glacier Bay, perhaps due to the number and frequency of ice blocks falling into the sea.  I made this image of its distinctive deep blue, ragged, face during one of its more calm moments.
