Perspective on Beauty

There is really no way to get real perspective on the massive wilderness up here. This is a picture of a Norwegian ship in front of a medium size Glacier in Glacier Bay. We were sailing to a larger glacier and passed by. The Norwegian ship is about half a mile from the glacier in the background, and we are about a mile away from that ship. You can see that this medium size ice river dwarfs the massive cruiser. I am told that if an earthquake were to occur causing a sizable fall of ice off the face, the tsunami it created could tip the ship if hit broadside like it is positioned in this photo. Fortunately those events have never come together but humans think they are in control. We are all just a minor infestation, and when Mother Earth yawns we realize how insignificant we become.
As you were,
