Leconte Glacier

I've watched a few episodes of Mozart in the Jungle. Good show.  And the title made me think of other historical figures in uncharacteristic places. Mainly painters, so I could show how it may have affected their work.  Monet in the Wild.  Cezanne on the Sea.

Here, Monet hopped on a floatplane for a look down on the Leconte Glacier in Southeast Alaska.

I mean, every classic painter would be cooler if they painted killer whales. It's a fact.

With the rest of the group hiking, Monet stayed on the edge of a river, taken by the blackwater reflection of cedar, sitka spruce and hemlock.
