Misty Fjords - Alaska

Steep mountain cliffs of the Misty Fjords (Misty Fjords National Monument) near Ketchikan, Alaska. These sheer walls support a rookery that is safe from predators, and the birds fertilize the plants :)


Notice how blue the mountain in the background is. Light rain is falling (as it often does here), so the moisture in the atmosphere quickly changes the color of objects only a short distance away!
