For Arbor Day, how could I go with anything other then one of the most magnificent tries on earth, the giant Sequoias! Even if I had to dig back in the archives to a trip about 12 years ago.
The Dalton Highway was featured for a number of years of the TV show Ice Road Truckers. Here is a truck driving that same “highway”, late and night under an aurora sky, as it makes its way towards Prudhoe Bay, Alaska. This is a combination of two exposures, one for the bright lights of the truck, and a second, much longer one for the aurora. I exposed the truck for 2.5 seconds at f/1.4 and iso 1600, then once the truck left the frame, I captured a second image with a 6 second exposure.
It has been a wet month – so when the sun popped out last night, I couldn’t resist photographing the mountains across from our house, even though I have a million photos of them already – now I have a million and one!
I thought I would share another penguin photo from this winter because I can.
I say winter, but it was actually summer down there.
This just arrived in the mail this afternoon! The photo was from last June’s bear tour to Lake Clark National Park. This calender is published by Greatland Graphics – they do a wonderful series of Alaska calenders. They have been a valued customer for many many years, and I’m proud to be a part of many of their beautiful products!
A small portion of this dramatic waterfall estimated to be 400 to 450 feet tall.
Looked up just in time yesterday to see the M/V Sikuliaq, turning around in front of the house. This is a brand new, state of the art ice class research vessel owned by the National Science Foundation and operated by the School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, and it to be home ported out of Seward, Alaska.
A bit of sunlight hitting Le Conte Glacier last summer in Southeast Alaska.
This was from an overnight trip last summer. Getting excited for our plans for this summer – it is going to be a busy but fun one!
Unfortunately a broken ankle has forced one of my guests to cancel his spot in my August Alaska Bear and Puffin Photo Tour.
My trips have been full for months, so if you missed out before, here is a chance to get in on this amazing trip! See all kinds of behavior, often we see nursing sows at close range! These bear trips never disappoint. Plus, this is maybe the best place in Alaska to photograph horned puffin! Throw in eagles, sea otters… Well you get the idea.
