Tern Lake is just off the Seward Highway on the Kenai Penninsula, south of Anchorage. Lakes in this area all have a milky
appearance which I have not seen adequately explained. I am guessing it has to do with oil shale in the terrain that powders
rather easily. The oil doesn't come out, so it isn't oil. It would be powder. Pure speculation on my part.
Vast and glorious vistas pose the kid-in-the-candy-store problem to photographers: there is too much to choose from.
Panoramas go for it all. Here the choice was to combine near elements with far.
