Scenes from the Alaska Landscape
"Frosty False O'Malley" --- Here is False O'Malley mountain (center) in Alaska's Chugach Mountains, seen one very frosty moonless midnight (-17F) in January, 2017. To the right of the peak, you can just make out the snowy spindrift being lofted back into the sky by the North wind. I had to keep every square centimeter of skin covered, to avoid frostbite. Only two tiny slits in my facemask were left to see through, and I was wishing I could make them narrower still! I wasn't expecting to get two shots I'd like so well. My intention this night was merely to test whether I had finally devised a tripod and shooting setup I could entirely manage without removing my gloves. This test proved I had done so. Yay! But I really just wanted to stay huddled in my layers and shuffle back down the mountain to the trailhead.
"Golden Hour Driftwood" --- Here is a delightful driftwood specimen at sunset, seen in the silt marsh along the coast of Alaska's Cook Inlet.
"Sunset Eagle" --- An eagle perches in front of Mt. Susitna, by all appearances taking in the sunset view. Mt. Susitna, across Cook Inlet from Anchorage Alaska, is known in this area as "Sleeping Lady", because her profile looks like, well, a sleeping lady! That's her long hair trailing off to the left, and her legs to the right. My grandmother homesteaded by herself just this side of Sleeping Lady's ankles, where she had a small cabin and kept a dog sledding team.
