Glacier Alley, Beagle Channel

Glacier Alley is an appropriately named part of the Beagle Channel (at the bottom tip of South America), home to six rather sizable glaciers in the space of an hour and a half of cruising along the channel. The glaciers are all named (in Spanish) after countries, and starting from the west are the Espana Glacier, Romanche Glacier, Alemania Glacier and Francia Glacier.

Three photos of Italia Glacier below showing it from different angles, followed by the final glacier, Holanda Glacier.

I love close ups of the glaciers, with a little contrast really showing the dirt (in brown) carried by them, and the areas of high pressure (in blue) where there is little or no air trapped in the ice.

The scenery in-between the glaciers was also pretty spectacular.
