Sitka, Alaska

The coastline of Sitka, Alaska is simply beautiful, and feels like it’s been lifted out of a storybook. As I sailed through its waters, I was witness to this beautiful sunrise.

Sometimes you gotta commit to get the shot!

While off-roading in Ketchikan, Alaska, my camera took a beating from the rain. I did my best to keep it clean and dry, but I eventually gave in to the fun in order to photograph the spraying mud from our tires. I posted an image a few days ago that caused this mess.

There are many sights while navigating the Inside Passage through Alaska. This small fishing boat caught my eye as the warm glow from its lights complimented the cool evening colors of the ocean and distant mountains.

Mendenhall Glacier, Juneau, Alaska

Viewing the Mendenhall Glacier from the air is breathtaking, and it’s hard to fathom just how big and old it is. Yet as I rode in the front passenger seat of an AS350 series A-Star helicopter chartered through @northstartrekking, I did my best to absorb and photograph the grand scene. I was strapped in with a four-point harness and surrounded by glass, yet the door had a small viewing window that I could slide open and point my camera through. Unable to look through the viewfinder, I composed the best I could. The results were interesting and surprising. I quite like this image.

Hubbard Glacier

A visit to the Hubbard Glacier is wonderful and exciting. However, it’s cold and wet. The good thing is that this tends to offer interesting views and photo opportunities. This image was taken from a ship in Disenchantment Bay as we spent time viewing Hubbard Glacier.

Ketchikan, Alaska

Off-roading is great fun. But racing through the mountains out of Ketchikan, Alaska in the rain is awesome!!! @adventurekartexpedition led the way as a group of us played in the mud. At first the weather was mild with just a light drizzle, and I did my best to keep my camera dry. But after a while, and as the weather got worse, I gave into the fun and started to photograph the spraying mud from our vehicles. Luckily my camera survived.

While cruising through the Inside Passage of Alaska, the weather is constantly changing and fleeting moments such as this are quickly gone. Luckily, I had my camera ready and shot this image of beautiful light.

Skagway, Alaska

The White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad, built in 1898, is a wonderful experience that brings you back to the days of the Yukon Gold Rush. This section of railroad begins in Skagway, Alaska and climbs roughly 3000 feet in 20 miles. It features steep grades, cliff-hanging turns, two tunnels and numerous bridges and trestles.

Mendenhall Glacier, Juneau, Alaska

The Mendenhall Glacier just outside Juneau, Alaska is a sight untold. It is just massive! On this particular day, I trekked with @northstartrekking over the undulated surface of ice and explored this small ice cave. As I turned around to exit, I saw one of my trekking partners standing at the opening. I couldn’t have asked for a better composition.
