Autumn in the Arctic

It still looks like summer in Seward, so it is hard to believe when I fly North in the morning that I will be heading into Autumn!  This is from the same polar bear trip last year.

Last week we had an amazing evening surrounded by lunge feeding humpbacks, right at sunset with a full moon!  It was a magical evening – we stayed with the whales until dark.

Back from an awesome Alaska bear and whale photo tour!  Fun group.  Great bears at Anan, probably the most beautiful bear viewing place I have visited.  Great brown bear on Baranof Island – I counted 18 at one time, there must have been 25 plus where we visited.  We had sunshine for Tracy Arm.  But the highlight had to be lunge feeding humpbacks under a sunset sky with a near full moon!  More photos to follow.

Heading to the Inside Passage

Packing up for an early morning flight to Southeast Alaska for another Bear and Whale Photo Tour!  This humpback is from last year’s trip.

Being at home for the past month has allowed me to get caught up on a year and a half back-log of editing, captioning and key-wording.  Now that I’m getting caught up, thought I would share some new photos that have been adjusted for the first time.
