The magnificence of nature is supremely evident in Glacier Bay National Park in Alaska. Here are some posters, postcards and greeting cards featuring Margerie Glacier, a 21-mile-long (34 km) tidewater glacier in Glacier Bay in Alaska.
Margerie Glacier is part of the Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve. It begins on the south slope of Mount Root, at the Alaska-Canada border in the Fairweather Range, and flows southeast and northeast to Tarr Inlet. It was named for the famed French geographer and geologist Emmanuel de Margerie (1862–1953), who visited the Glacier Bay in 1913. It is an integral part of the Glacier Bay, which was declared a National Monument on February 26, 1925, a National Park and Wild Life Preserve on December 2, 1980, a UNESCO declared World Biosphere Reserve in 1986 and a World Heritage Site in 1992.
Margerie Glacier is said to be stable and Johns Hopkins Glacier is stated to be advancing, on the eastern face of the Fairweather Range.

One of the most miraculous of flowers is the orchid, so I thought it was perfect to illustrate George Bernard Shaw’s quote about the Miracle of Miracles — Life. A baby, of course, would be perfect, too.
The Phalaenopsis orchid, also called the moth orchid, is an orchid genus of approximately 60 species and is one of the most popular and easy to grow. You almost forget what a wonder of nature it is. A miracle.
“Miracles, in the sense of phenomena we cannot explain, surround us on every hand: life itself is the miracle of miracles.”
by George Bernard Shaw
I did a little research on the color Magenta, wondering about this shade of pinkish purple, violet red or purplish red, and found that magenta isn’t a real color. Magenta is an “extra spectral” color. Sir Isaac Newton noticed that magenta did not exist in the spectrum of colors from white light when he played with prisms.
Our brain does the mixing of adjoining wavelengths. But since our brain does all of the work of translating wavelengths into colors, I say magenta is almost as real as the other colors.
According to Liz Elliott, “A beam of white light is made up of all the colours in the spectrum. The range extends from red through to violet, with orange, yellow, green and blue in between. But there is one colour that is notable by its absence.” To read more and see some fun tricks with colors and learn more about magenta, read “Magenta Ain’t a Colour.”
Despite being “extra spectral” color, magenta is a hard-working color. It’s one of the three primary colors of the subtractive CMYK Color Model.
Magenta was first introduced as the color of a new aniline dye called fuchsine, patented in 1859 by a French chemist. Its name was changed the same year to magenta, to celebrate a victory of the French and Sardinian army at the Battle of Magenta in 1859, near the town of that name.
The web color magenta is also called fuchsia.
Well, I got sidetracked by magenta, forgetting all about George Bernard Shaw. You can read about him here: George Bernard Shaw.
