This is sunset from my recent overnight trip to the Harding Icefield.

Over the last few months I have been photographing and posting images from the Seward area, most of which were captured within the 10 mile or so section you see in this image.  The largest mountain on the right is Mt. Alice, probably my single most photographed subject.  Below Mt Alice, covered in fog, is the seaside town of Seward, the town we are proud to call home.  The valley between Exit Glacier and Mt. Alice is the Resurrection River Valley – a beautiful valley I love to drive or ski through, and the source of endless photographic inspiration.  And finally there is Exit Glacier and the Kenai Fjords National Park.

  1. Dang it Ron, I thought you were planning on retiring!!! 🙂 See, I get my hopes up… and there you go again… 🙂 Just kidding. Great shot, this is a really unique perspective, Exit Glacier just disappears into the mist.

  4. Wow, this is fantastic. I like how you didn’t lose any shadow detail on the mountains on the right, while keeping all the highlights on the fog.

    I’m curious as to what kind of camera backpack you use for your equipment on these types of hikes. I’m looking into getting one for my upcoming Yellowstone trip.

    Thanks a lot Scott!

    For this I used a regular backpack. Mine is a Mountainsmith, it is getting a bit old now, so I doubt the model is even available. The thing I like about mine is there are nice tie downs on the outside for ice axes etc. I use these for my tripod. It also has a removable waist pack – this is nice for carrying lens and filters once in camp.
