Photo: Glacier Colors Kluane National Park Yukon Territory

An array of colors explode from a glacier in Kluane National Park in the Yukon Territory which are often spectacular especially when the sunlight highlights them.

The colors of a glacier often have blue shining through the ice which is a process of how the sunlight passes through. Sunlight appears as a white color to the human eye, but in reality there are many colors and when this light tries to get through the glacier ice, it breaks up taking away many of the colors such as the reds and yellows, leaving behind the high energy of the blue light.The blue light does not get soaked up and escapes unless the glacier has air bubbles inside the ice crystals, then the white light gets reflected leaving behind the white coloring of the ice. After many years, as the glaciers moves, it will get mixed in with soil, rocks, snow and dirt which gives the surface of this glacier in Kluane National Park in the Yukon Territory its brown colored face near the water's edge.Glacier in Kluane National Park, Yukon Territory, Canada
