Seward Boat Harbor

Seward Boat Harbor, Alaska.

Yesterday’s (Thursday) sunrise wasn’t limited to Seward, it was so spectacular in Anchorage that they did a story on it on the nightly news! 

Today I was ready and went down to the Small Boat Harbor.  The sunrise was very short lived and not nearly as spectacular, but it was still pretty nice.

Seward, Alaska Sunrise

Wouldn’t you know it, a few hours after saying I wouldn’t be doing much shooting, I’m out photographing this sunrise.  How could I not!  With a good humored, sarcastic laugh, Janine mentioned how we really needed more photos of a sunrise over Resurrection Bay – I probably have 100’s.  That’s ok, I will probably take 100’s more in the years to come, even if they are just for me.  In reality, because of the surrounding mountains, sunrises and sunsets are relatively infrequent around Seward. 

We traveled to some beautiful areas this fall including the Tetons, but in my opinion nothing compares to where we live.  The Tetons are a household name in the U.S., but I think this range of mountains is equally dramatic, rising out of the ocean with near the vertical relief as the Tetons, and yet I don’t even know the names of these peaks – they may not have names.  By Alaska standards, these are small.  I feel very blessed and fortunate to live near such beauty!

Zion Slot Canyon

This is a narrow side canyon to the main canyon in a place I posted about a few weeks ago.  The three prior posts from the last week were from this canyon as well.

We are now caught up on all our print orders, it took a bit longer then expected, we had about 60 prints to prepare and send.  Orders coming in now will be sent within a couple of days via Priority Mail.

The blog activity might slow a little during the next couple of months.  I know, I have said that a few times before, but continued to post nearly daily.  But this time not only do we need to get caught up on our recent travels, but we have tackled a little remodel project at home, and that is keeping us pretty busy.  I probably won’t do much shooting, but I do have plenty to share from recent travels.  In February we hit the road again for a couple of months, and then it will be spring, summer and fall in Alaska, so I should have plenty to share then!

While in Zion we totally got hooked on canyoneering.  We hope to do much more next fall.  We intended to take some training classes on the subject during this trip, but decided we would wait until next fall for the training since I would likely forget all I learned in the year in between.

Waterfall near Zion

Well if you follow this blog, you know how excited I was to be back in Alaska for some great winter weather.  Well unfortunately, highs in the upper 40’s and 6 inches of rain put an end to winter this week – we received 2 inches of rain on Thanksgiving day alone. 

So we decided to take advantage of the bad weather and the holiday weekend to take our office down and paint it.  Then we decided we didn’t like the new color, and painted it again. 🙂  It helps having a mom who is an artist to bail us out with color selection!  So now we are back in business.

Print Special – Free Shipping

Last year our free shipping offer was so popular, we have decided to do it again.  So for any order over $100, we will ship it for free via Priority Mail to anywhere in the United States – yes even Alaska and Hawaii. 

If you ordered prints during the last two months while we were traveling, and your order is just getting filled this week, you might think this is unfair to now read about this special – and we agree.  So, for any order over $100 placed during the last two months you will also receive the shipping for free.

So why McWay Falls?  No reason, but it has been a popular print.
