  4. Wow it was 1974 when I saw this area live! Great images and fun memories.. though my Kmart slide film was from a bad batch. Athabaska Falls looked like a mudflow in my '73 shots :eek: thankfully we revisited some of the area a year later.

    I enjoyed looking through this set.

    Amazing how one can catch a bus to walk on a glacier. Wow, I thought that was great, unthinkable here in Europe.

    Yeah. The only other time I was there was on a family trip (all of us bundled into the station wagon) back in the '60's, so I really enjoyed returning. I don't have photos from that first trip, and I don't remember too much, but I had the distinct impression that there was a lot more ice in the glacier, and it was closer to the highway (which I'm sure it was).

    Glaciers are receeding everywhere... The major ones in NZ are certainly...

    Oh, wow! These photos are amazing – and they bring back wonderful memories from when my parents and I visited the national park 20 years ago. Looks like you were really lucky with the weather, and got to enjoy these amazing sights at their best. Thank you so much for sharing!

    was there in 78 on the way to Alaska... Finally getting ready to scan in all my 1400 slides from that 3 month adventure. Thanks for the memories!
    Wonder how much the glacier has actually receded since then ?

    I use DxO (version 10 and now, PhotoLab) for RAW processing (exposure, color, crop, simple perspective corrections) and GIMP for any additional tweaks and edits. I use Hugin for stitching panoramas, aligning HDR stacks, and defishing (reprojecting) images.

    I have Affinity Photo for PC and iPad, but I have not bonded with it yet, so I use it rarely.
