Crevasse exploration.

Some are dry and others, like this one, have melted ice.

Hiking out was treacherous. This is where the crampons were most useful.

Yikes!
Really awesome photos. Maybe it's been covered, but what camera was used? An auto setting or ?? The balanced lighting and sharp focus are outstanding.

Wilderone,

There's nothing special about this camera. It's a Canon A630 point and click with a fixed lens. It takes AA batteries and was therefore good for this trip because there was nowhere to recharge a battery. Placing it on a tripod looked pretty comical (where's the camera?!).

10 years ago it was the best point and click on the market. You can't even shoot in RAW mode with this thing. But it does have manual mode which allows you to adjust almost every parameter separately for each image (that's primarily why I picked it).

That scares the living daylights out of me! WOW --- great photo. I would say one of the best ---- lots of best ones, however.

I was born and raised in Juneau. Lived there for 25 years. It is always nice to get a taste of home! Thanks!
