Chilean Fjords – Amalia Glacier

Posted in Travel by Dennis Wright on March 12, 2012

The Amalia glacier is something like 2km wide as it reaches the sea and has a striking blue colour. You can see the upper stretches of it as it comes down the mountainside.

I was having trouble snapping Naomi with the glacier in the background. She either came out too dark or the background was overexposed. The ship’s official photographer came out with his DSLR and took a picture which had both us and the background correctly exposed. I was stumped until I realised he’d just used fill-in flash. I tried the same trick and my snaps were suddenly as good as his.
