I almost felt the chill in the air when I looked at them!
The water had a sheen of ice on it - right at the point of changing from liquid to solid. The air was so clean and crisp. When standing on the balcony we could definitely feel the chill from all that ice. It was like opening a freezer door at home and standing there.
You take in the majesty of it all and it gives you a sense of being insignificant as compared to the whole of nature.
The quiet while gliding through the fjord was noticeable. People weren't saying much. Just looking at the beauty all around us. All I heard was cameras clicking and little else. It was like being in a cathedral and you are afraid to do anything but whisper, lest you interrupt someone's meditation or prayers.
Dave, great photos. I've been meaning to ask, did the White Pass rail line live up to the reviews? I hear nothing but praise as one of the best and most affordable excursions. I'd like your take on it.
