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!
