The Hubbard Glacier is reported to be six miles wide and tower about 300 feet above the water. Our cruise ship got in very close, so close that the entire glacier could not be captured in one shot from an extremely wide-angle lens.
This 1st photo of the Hubbard was taken as multiple shots taken while panning across the face of the glacier. I could only get this unobstructed view from the back deck of the ship after it had turned to leave the glacier face. I was lucky that I know some nooks and crannies of the ship that are never over populated so that I could swing the camera in one smooth motion.
