Here is a photo I captured in Seward, Alaska last June. During the first part of summer there is a period of time right after the foliage reappears where the greens are off the chart. I call it the hyper green period. I think the greens this year look even richer – I think that is because we just returned from the west where everything is so dry and brown. They say there area around Yellowstone is dryer this year then in 1988! 1988 is the year much of Yellowstone burned. Thanks to a cool spring, it is also shaping up as a good wildflower year, at least on the Kenai Peninsula. I haven’t had a chance to shoot since arriving home, so I pulled out a shot from last year.
