Scenes from the Alaska Landscape
"Haiku Forest" --- I happened upon this small, lonely forest in miniature, high above the tree-line, in the heart of Alaska's Chugach Mountains. These particular trees were of a type which I haven't noticed much around here. We have lots of black spruce, and then hemlock higher up. But this was neither of those ubiquitous types. The bark was smooth and light tan, while the trunks were very straight and uniform thickness. Nothing like it nearby, that I have seen.
"Spring is in the Air" --- A refreshing spring scene in Alaska's Chugach Mountains.
"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.
