In this picture taken by a photographer Kent Smith, fresh water from melting glaciers is meeting with the ocean. Ocean water has a higher percentage of salt and therefore has a different density making it difficult for the two bodies of water to mix. I thought this was the most unusual thing I saw on the Alaskan cruise in the water. These two bodies of water were merging in the middle of the Alaskan gulf and there was a foam developing only at their junction."Kent smith"
