Running water often falls vertically for great distances when it falls off the surface of the glacier in a moulin. Sometimes though, it abruptly changes course and runs almost horizontally, as in the case of the water seen at the bottom of this photo.
I didn't even remember to pack a tripod for this combination kayak and glacier trek. That actually made things simpler when it came to making photographs at this location, but it necessitated a wide aperture and high ISO. Thanks to the capabilities of modern cameras and software, the image should still print beautifully at adequately large sizes.
