Steller Sea Lions

Kenai Fjords Tour – Part 4

The highlight of both my tours was the sea life (and some wildlife too). I saw so many Orcas that I got picky about which ones were worthy of photos.  I also saw several humpbacks, but the most interesting was a momma and baby who playfully breached, siphoned, and tail slapped right next to our […]

Me at Holgate Glacier

Kenai Fjords Tour – Part 3

The glaciers visible on the Kenai Fjords tour are part of the Harding Icefield (named after President Harding).  The Harding Icefield is the largest icefield contained entirely within the United States. During my two trips, I got photographs of four of the forty glaciers that spider out from Harding Icefield.  It doesn’t matter how many […]

Kenai Fjords Landscape

Kenai Fjords Tour – Part 2

As promised I want to share some photos from my Kenai Fjords trip.  I want to build up to the grand finale…the sea life…so, to start I thought I’d share some of the landscape of the area.  Although the weather was just mediocre the stunning greens really stood out. Kenai Fjords – Part 1

Orca Voyager

Kenai Fjords Tour – Part 1

During my Alaska/Canada Road Trip, in May, I finally did something I’ve always wanted to do…a trip through Kenai Fjords out of Seward, Alaska. Lesson Learned So, why has it taken me so long to share this trip?  Well, I encountered every photographer’s nightmare.  For some reason I decided to move my photos to an […]

Kinley and Aker on Lower Car Deck

Dogs on the Alaska Marine Highway System (Alaska Ferry)

I’ve shared a lot of stories/photos from my trip on the Alaska Marine Highway, but I have more! When I decided to go to Alaska I wanted to bring my dogs with me.  The original plan was to drive.  After thinking about it and some sound advice from my dad, I decided to take the […]

DNP - Landscape

The Landscape of Denali National Park and Preserve

Grizzly sow and cubs, prancing caribou, majestic dall sheep, and hidden moose (not to mention the moose charging) were all amazing, but the landscape of Denali National Park and Preserve was also beautiful.  I already shared some of the landscape in my post about the sunset. I spent several hours sitting in my car, at […]

DNP - Sunset Reflecting on Mountain

Sunset in Denali National Park and Preserve

Getting a sunset photo in summer (and even in the spring) could be challenging unless you want to stay up very, very late.  In the middle of the summer there would be a good chance of catching a sunset and sunrise within one hour of each other.  There wasn’t that much daylight while I was […]

DNP - Bull Moose

Hidden Moose in Denali National Park and Preserve

I don’t care how many moose I’ve seen in my life, I get excited every time.  During my Alaska/Canada road trip I saw 38.  Of those, eight were in Denali National Park and Preserve.  The thing about moose in the spring was they were shedding and sometimes looked a bit ragged.  They also blended in […]

Wrangell Narrows

2012 Week #22

When I decided to take and post photos every week this year, I intentionally didn’t set any rules.  I never said I’d only pick my best photos.  Instead I have focused on my favorites or even most interesting.  This week I definitely choose photos I thought were interesting because of the story they tell. To […]
