Traversing Alaska

Catching a plane North today – will spend the next month traveling from the very northern portions of Alaska, through Denali, Prince William Sound and Lake Clark National Park.  I mention this, as I’ll have very little internet over the next month, so probably won’t be posting anything until July – see you then!

In this photo, you can see why they were given the name horned puffin.  From my assignment earlier this week at the Alaska Sealife Center.

Who has better hair, this Tufted Puffin or Donald Trump?  I’m going with the puffin!

This was from a second assignment at the Sealife Center – such a fun place to photograph!

Going through some older images today for a project and came across this – hard to beat Aialik Bay, Kenai Fjords National Park, Alaska!  Just one of the great things about living in Seward.

Last Second Bear Tour Opening!

Another new cover in the mail when I got home – this Bell Mapbook!  Also always a treat to be on a Bell’s cover, as it is a family own business – I remember them coming through Glennallen when I was a kid!  We have proudly worked with them for many, may years.

I photographed this cute little cub during one of my June Alaska Bear Photo Tours.  I mention that, as unfortunately one of my regular clients is going to have to cancel his June spot.  This trip usually fills very quickly a year in advance, so this is a bit of a rare opportunity to join me during the best time of year for Brown Bears and cubs!  The dates on June 26th to July 1.  Please call or email if you have any questions or interest in this trip.

Now that I’m back home, I might subject you to just a little bit of shameless self promotion.  But, some of these are just too cool not to share, including the cover of this years Greatland Graphics 2017 Alaska Time calendar!  I’m always proud to be on the cover of any Greatland Graphics product, as they have been producing high quality work featuring Alaska photographers for many years now!  I photographed these two cubs during last June’s Alaska Bear Photo Tour.

Gray Fox

Gray Fox.

We had a new visitor to our bird feeders yesterday, and this one is really exciting!  The gray fox is such an elusive desert animal that is usually only active at night.  Until this trip, I had only seen one, at sunset in Red Rock Canyon near Vegas.  This guy drank from my water drip, ate some bird seeds off the ground, and spent a lot of time watching the nearby birds, but didn’t go after any.  Maybe he will grab on of the many squirrels raiding our feeders.  🙂
