Celestial Season

November 15th, 2013

Celestial Season

Although there was no aurora this night a full moon made up for it. I drove down the Seward Highway to the head of Turnagain and too a few long exposures of the scene. This one fell together. I loved the way icebergs streaked the water as the tide carried them along. And the high clouds really made the shot special.

Mysterious Ways

I certainly was on my knees. 19 nights into my latest photography trip I was given this amazing display of pure power. I had seen some minor displays during the trip but nothing like this. It came out at twilight and sent me into a panic. I simply could not afford to fail. So I shot from 6:30 in the evening unto 4: am the following day until it slowly moved back north and disappeared. I am just beginning to process the images from this trip and have many more from this night coming soon.

A River Runs Through It

A River Runs Through It

This is why I love Alaska; the purity, the peace, and no bugs! The winter of 2011-2012 brought us record snow. Bryn and I would hike a narrow snow mobile trail down to Bench Creek where for some reason the creek bubbled out of the gravel and never did freeze. It was an absolute winter wonderland and I remember being a bit depressed when spring came along and all the snow fell off the trees and started to melt.

Now Face North

Taken on a three week trip into Alaska's Prince William Sound last March, this is a three image panorama of the Chugach Mountains above Serpentine Cove in Harriman Fjord. It was a cold and perfectly still late-winter morning and the reflections were just amazing. The color version of this is very nice as well but I like the purity of the black and white.

Cold Cruel World

Cold Cruel World

I just returned from a 19-day photography quest to the head of College Fjord in Alaska's Prince William Sound. Although the trip was bit frustrating with over 10 days of rain, I had a couple clear nights to maybe see the aurora which I very much wanted to capture over that place. I took this panorama on the first night of the trip. I got treated to a brilliant display on the final day but at this moment I do not have those images processed yet. This display was quite weak but coupled with the moon it lit the scene in a magical way.

The Big Catch

The Big Catch

Part of my glacier tours during the summer of 2013 involved feeding some nesting eagles in Blackstone Bay which is part of Alaska's Prince William Sound. I had to catch the fish first which didn't always happen. But when I did the eagles were usually most eager to come down and take the carcass back to their nest. This is very hard subject to capture. I usually failed but not this time.
