Scenes from the Alaska Landscape
"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.
"Wolverine Aurora" --- Here is Wolverine mountain (center) in Alaska's Chugach Mountains, seen one very frosty moonless midnight (-17 F) in January, 2017. The Aurora Borealis appears over the mountain tops. This scene is rendered with very course film-like grain. 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.
Turnagain Ice Tide --- Here is a mid-winter sunset on the Turnagain Arm of Alaska's Cook Inlet. The second-highest tides in the entire world bring miles upon miles of ice churning swiftly by, both in and out again, twice daily.
