Photo of the Week: Alaskan Ice

Photo of the Week Alaskan IceI have crawled through caves, but only ones formed out of earth, not ice. I am also guessing that climbing around on ice is quite a feat. It would be worth it for this view. The inside of this iceberg in Alaska shimmers from the sunlight peeking in the cave’s opening.  

Thank you CU photographer sspencer78 for submitting your photo this week. Check out sspencer78’s My Alaska gallery to see more photos from the inside of an iceberg and the wildlife swimming around in the frigid, Alaskan weather.

Keep submitting your photos every week to the CU photo-sharing site. Each week the Photo of the Week is taken from that week’s submissions. You have to submit every week for a chance to be the Photo of the Week!

Remember to fill out the captions and give your gallery a name all its own. The more we know about an image, the more we can take from it.
