Up close and PERSONAL...

, on Flickr

Our cruise ship got as close as it can get to Sawyer Glacier @ Tracy Arm Fjord... According to the cruise director, he mentioned that the height of this glacier stands almost twice the height of the Empire State Building... And is about two mile wide from end-to-end... I was able to take this shot to show its massive size in one frame @ 400mm... As our ship began to slowly get some distance away, I was able to take several singular frames to create a panoramic of Sawyer Glacier... I will post that tomorrow for your viewing pleasure... In the meantime, here's an 'up close and personal' view of this gigantic piece of ice...

1D4 + 400L DO IS... ISO 400, f/4 @ 1/2000sec...

:)

With nothing in the frame to give scale, it's really hard to judge how big it is just from a picture...

"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

I was able to capture the sun rising over the Persian Gulf and the sun setting on the Mediterranean Sea.

I was able to capture this photo along with many others as I hung out of a car at 80mph on the way to the airport in the UAE. Driving from Ras Al Khaimah to Dubai.

After touching down in Beirut, I made my way back to my grandmothers house in the mountains where we have a beautiful view of Beirut.

I had no idea how small Edoras was!

What a beautiful area. Amazing how time flies; they stopped filming more than a decade ago.

From my work (albeit brief and hardly professional) with theatre productions, I was always a bit remorseful when leaving a set. Your photo reminds me of fleeting even the most stressful and busy periods actually area.

Thank you. It looks smaller than it is due to the telephoto perspective/compressio​n. Although nowhere near as large as it seems in the movies. Here's another shot of the hill -- notice the summit marker and person at the top...

Shot @ 200mm:

Also right by there is the ravine where they digitally inserted Helm's Deep for the wide shots. When Aragorn returns to the fortress from his fall (after the warg battle), he sits on his horse on top of the little hill in the foreground and looks at Helm's Deep in the canyon in the background:

I hear you about theatre work. I worked on some theatre productions many years ago (not pro), and the camaraderie and friendships fostered during those times is just fantastic.

Thanks. It is quite a stunning setting. It's about an hour drive from my place, so it has become my go-to place for dramatic landscapes. And it's always so uncrowded.
