Island in the Alaskan Fjord

When the ship was working its way through the fjords of Alaska, I was amazed at how many twists and turns there were! I was used the the fjords of New Zealand being fairly simple affairs. More or less straight shots. But these in Alaska are twisty beyond compare. Every time the ship made a big turn, I expected to be at the end, but it just opened up onto a new vista. And even more strange, they had these wonderful islands scattered around the middle. I was not used to that either… but it looked so lovely. If you look in the back, you can see a glacier… and in the foreground you can see the various bits of ice that have calved off…
