Hikers make the trek to Portage Glacier on frozen Portage Lake in Southcentral Alaska.

In late winter, when outdoor temperature moderate, hikers trek across the frozen Portage Lake about three miles one way to the face of Portage Glacier. A clearing storm revealed beautiful directional light across the lake and surrounding mountains. By converting the color image to black and white the drama of the light came through. Over the course of a few decades the glacier has receded quite a bit.
Taken with a Canon 5D Mark IV and EF24-70mm f/2.8L II USM lens.
