ABOUT THE IMAGE:
Who could ever imagine a time when many of the glaciers on earth, remnants of the Pleistocene Ice Age, would be gone?
When Among the Glaciers
first appeared as a print in Thomas D. Mangelsen’s galleries, the response was immediate. Businesspeople in cities bought it to hang on their skyscraper office walls and boardrooms; others positioned it in their living rooms, saying it had the same effect as if a picture window holding wildness had been opened in their homes.
In Among the Glaciers
, a bald eagle soars, set against the backdrop of the coastal mountain range in southeast Alaska that resembles a marble cake sheathed in a frosting of ancient glacial ice. Every year, hundreds of bald eagles gather at the mouth of the Chilkat River where it meets the sea. Here, the magnificent raptors cruise the watercourse plucking salmon with their talons and gather in numbers witnessed in few other places on the continent.
