Detail on the Copper River Delta, near Cordova, Alaska.
I remember well the first time I flew into Cordova in an Alaska Airlines jet. Looking out the window, I was mesmerized by the rich greens and wonderful patterns in this amazing wetlands. Unfortunately, photography isn’t practical from a jet, so I put it on the list for another day. It has been six years, but this summer I was finally able to get back to do some aerial shooting of the Delta. What an amazing treat!
Without a reference point for scale, I suppose this could look like a close-up of lichen on a rock. Actually this was shot from a helicopter with the door removed. This is looking almost straight down. Tomorrow I will post a photo of a shot that includes the surrounding mountains to help with perspective. The photo opportunities in this little patch alone are endless!
