Alaska

Brilliant fire sky sunset over Eagle River in Eagle River AK

I got a once in life time chance to go up to Barter Island (Kaktovick AK) to view the Polar Bears and was floored by the size of this Alpha male as he made his way to the water to wash off the sand he had been laying in all day after gorging on whale meat..

I was attempting climb up Butte hill in Palmer to capture the Sunset of Knik Glacier but quickly realized I was not climbing fast enough to reach the summit, so I opted to go off trail and headed West and found this field of fireweed under fire.

Took a day trip out to Matanuska Glacier and was rewarded with this shot of undercut of glacial runoff. It was a precarious climb down in to cavity as I was not sure I was going to be able to get out unscathed and dry.

There is no such thing as a bad day to hike in Alaska… Though this hike started out cloudy and wet the sun broke midway up Twin Peaks trail in Eklutna Lake and gave me that small window of opportunity to capture this shot of fall colors through the Birch. 

Not sure how I did not fall into the water when getting this shot as there were a bunch of young teens watching me make the attempt to cross.. they even cheered me on. Up on Archangel Trail in Hatcher Pass

Old fishing boat named the Nomad, frozen in marsh on Knik Inlet near old Knik Townsite, Wasilla Alaska

I have been shooting Mt Denali for years and am never disappointed at the view she offers each time especially on a rare cloudless day in September

Brilliant Sunrise over Eagle River Valley and the Chugach Mountains

I was blessed to catch Denali in full Autumn Bloom.. The colors of the tundra was like nothing I’ve ever witnessed before

Caught this Majestic Bull Moose in Denali National Park And Preserve just has he was shedding the velvet from his impressive antlers

An old beaver pond sculpted the current landscape seen in this shot of the Chugach Mountains in Eagle River Alaska.

After about a week of cloudy skies we were granted this Sunrise gift on Christmas Eve along Petersville Rd in Trapper Creek Alaska.

I love the mood of the 7 minute exposed image! Shot near Virgin Creek as it heads into the Turnagain Arm during a soft sunset.reflection.

The Siberian Sled Dog Team (from left) Ittoq, Snuppa, Svolvaer and Jesper, start their 2014 Iditarod race in Willow Alaska. The team is owned by Kenneth & Yvonne Dabakk and they were “happy” to report that Ittoq, Snuppa and Svolvaer Finished the race.

View of famed Kennecott Mine that is situated next to Kennicott Glacier near McCarthy Alaska. Once heralded as the richest known concentration of copper in the world. The mine operated from 1909 until 1938 and yielded over 1.183 billion pounds of copper.

We had a young black bear visit our apple trees trying to get it’s last meal before the long sleep and given the amount of snow we had, that should not be too long…Sleep well little buddy.
