The perspective change after months standing in a valley surrounded by familiar mountains and then being lifted to their level and above. The shapes and the play of light between clouds. The silty streams of glacial runoff mixing in to the deep blue of the salty fjord. Aerial photography is taking off with drones but nothing beats climbing in to a single engine propeller plane and exploring the mountains with an Alaskan bush pilot.
All of these shots are from the upper Lynn Canal in SE Alaska, in and around (and above) Glacier Bay National Park.
