Hubbard Glacier

The Hubbard Glacier is unpredictable and exciting at times. I think that’s why I endured the rain and cold to photograph the occasional calving. I wanted something grand and epic. This is what I got.

Leaning over and staring into the endless pit of a moulin can be very daunting, and the blackness of the unknown below grabs a hold of you and makes you feel alive. I relished this moment.

This is another aerial image photographed from the front passenger seat of an AS350 series A-Star helicopter chartered through @northstartrekking. Considering I was strapped in with a four-point harness, surrounded by glass, and not looking through the viewfinder as I aimed it through a small viewing window at my waist, I’m quite pleased with the composition.

Trying to photograph a whale blow is very challenging. It’s so difficult to predict where they’re going to surface, but I got lucky with this one.

The waters off of Sitka, Alaska have plenty of wildlife from sea otters to dolphins to whales. You’re pretty much guaranteed to see a humpback whale.

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.

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.

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.
