Thanks for you enthusiastic comments, Rich. We share a love of the natural beauty of the world around us, and clearly our concern about its "staying power" in the face of what the "civilized" world is doing to it.
A fantastic shot, Hank!
Hi hank, couldnt agree with u more,the natural beauty of planet is the greatest legacy we can leave our children :)
Thanks Eve and Rosina. I'm sure you've heard that classic expression which, as I heard it, we credit our American Indians with making the observation that we don't leave the world to our children; we borrow it from them. I find greater responsibility in that phraseology.
its such a shame when you look at the beauty of this place and many others on the website that mankind is slowly but surely destroying the planet.i have commented to many people on panoramio that the things god gave us in the beginning sun ,sea, wind ,rain,trees,plants these to me are the things that ultimately give us all pleasure not material things. all we can do is educate our children to take care of the planet its the only one we have!
Hi steandeb. I think many of us who post on Panoramio enjoy the beauty of nature as you have described it. I think you'll find there are many ways each of us can help, but unfortunately our impact will vary by the conscience of our political leaders. In short there are times when we are heard better than at other times. Keep up the dialogue, and thanks for using my photo to share your feelings.
Thanks Gerry. Alaska is truly a magical place, and to a large degree it is places like this that make it so. The ice sculpture still on page one as I write, was also taken at this very location. It is a closeup of the floating ice from a slightly different angle: http://www.panoramio.com/photo/2966645
Thanksfor visiting and commenting.
Very nice Hank! A great photo!
Hi Sigmund. After visiting your collection for a bit, this is quite a compliment. Thank you.
es una maravilla felicidades..
Pili Liron, gracias. Le aprecio las palabras de la alabanza calientes.
يخلق الله ما يشاء؛ صورة جميلة لصاحب ذوق رفيع، أشكركم على هذه الطبيعة الجميلة
God creates what He wills; a pretty picture for the high-taste, thank you for this beautiful nature
وشكرا لك على الثناء السخي.
Thanks for the Link Hank..The difference is quite startling!
I mean we all know the glaciers are receding, but it's a different feeling when you see it yourself...in person.
Whow, I really do like places like this one. In the Swiss Alps we also live the dramatic receding of the glaciers. It seems unrestrainable. Until we won't change our behaviour which has a deep impact on the environment. Ciao,Andrea
Like you I am both an advocate for the environment and an activist on its behalf. We must all pull together or we will have nothing to leave to our children.
