The Massive Glacier at Dusk

This is the Perito Moreno Glacier that empties into Lago Argentina. It was simply awesome to be there, as you can plainly see.

I was there with a bunch of Russians who had brought an insane amount of cognac. Between shots, they would all drink cognac, yell, and try to bring down the next ice wall. We were the only ones there, and we stayed until the last moments of dark to eek out every last bit of light from the sky.

Also, I wanted to point you to an article over at Abduzeedo yesterday about the new book. It was written by good man Paulo Canabarro (his Twitter account here). You can also follow @Abduzeedo if you are looking for another good set of Tweets. I notice that people that complain about Twitter always have the same sort of complaints: “I don’t want to know when everyone is standing in line at Starbucks!” Well, then, I say, you are following the wrong people! Once you get 50-100+ people to follow, it becomes a nice source for information, fun, and inspiration. It might take a while to build your personalized list, but then you will be hooked. (I am @TreyRatcliff, in case ya didn’t know).

The Massive Glacier at Dusk

  • I enjoy the composition of this image, but it seems a little soft. Also, the noise and artifacting in the clouds is distracting. I enjoyed the other image from this location better. On a different note, the visual you give through your story is humorous and well written.

  • Hoy! That looks cold. Just imagining that is a nice break from the heat out here in AZ.

  • ahh, getting lost in blue, space and time

  • katom

    It looks like instead White balance you’ve used Blue balance? :))

  • “Cool” photo, Trey. I like the blue effect!!! Thanks for sharing!!

  • Brad Truxell

    Really cool shot. I like the sky with the wide angle lens. Great detail.

  • Barb

    Brrr!!! It looks really cold. I don’t really like the excessive amount of sky in this picture. You could easily crop at least a third of it out

  • Another unbelievable photo Trey, thank you for mentioning my name there and my twitter.

  • I think the photo is great as it is… no cropping needed IMO. The sky plays a very powerful element on this one as it cools down the overall feeling even more.

  • Thanks — yes I like this one quite a lot too! 🙂

  • Great picture, next time there is a insain amount of liqure call me

    PrettY cool anther great photo! but the one guy was right the nosie

  • john best

    Glad you left all of the sky in, noise and all. Without that face that’s up there, this would be just another nice photo of a glacier.

    Congrats on the 20M views on Flickr. More good news: your HDR image, A Razor to the Sky, will be published on 9/11 on Apogee Photo Magazine in an article called Symphony in a Moment: HDR Nature Photography by Eight Maestros, by Jim Austin.
    And thanks for all your help, Trey.

    Brilliant!! Love this one, almost as much as another of your glacier shots. For some reason, I feel like I would have like to see maybe a little bit more of the glacier on the left side of the frame, but that’s just me. I just love the blue tone througout!
