Earth and Ice - Glacier Bay, Alaska

From a photo, it is hard to comprehend the immensity of a glacier. In this image, you can see water rushing from within the glacier, dark from the silts and sediments it carries. To the left of the cavern from which the water is gushing, you can see a block of bluish ice. From my memory of this scene, that block of ice was easily as tall as a man.
