Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitary


I love it when I can immediately pick a photo for a challenge.  This photo was taken in the Kenai Fjords National Park in Alaska this summer.  We did a half day kayaking trip across the Bay from our lodge.  It was dead calm and quiet and a marvelous trip.  I took this photo from our kayak of one of our fellow paddlers against the backdrop of the glacier almost two miles away.  You could hear the occasional calving of the glacier but it was an extremely serene trip and experience.  I like this picture as it kind of captures the smallness of us humans against the incredible scope of nature.  Hope you enjoy.
