Dog sledding is at the top of my list for best experiences of 2018. I was surprised at not only how far they run for their races but how fast they could pull you. It’s too bad I live near the beach I think I’d make a awesome Musher! Dana’s dogsled team kind’ve has a nice ring to it. 😜 #coolrunnings
As we head toward the start of the 2018 Iditarod, now is the perfect time to pick up a copy of my latest book, Icons of the Iditarod! An “icon” is defined as someone or something that is revered or idolized and directly reflects or symbolizes something else. In this case, Icons of the Iditarod includes memorable people, dogs, places, gear, events and even FOOD from the Last Great Race® that have shaped Iditarod history. Get your copy via the link in my bio!

This image as taken as the sun was setting. It shows Pioneer Peak in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley. Just love all that colorful sky. Shot on a Canon 5D Mark III body with a 70-200mm f2.8 II lens at 142mm f5 1/15th second ISO 100 and on a tripod with a Singh-Ray polarizer filter.

EPIC day in the cove, @brooklynn_xz spotted some Orcas playing around on the outside beach so we raced around with the boat to get the shot and watched them swim all the way down Glacier Spit.

Here is an aerial image of the famous Mooses Tooth massif taken this winter. The Mooses Tooth is 10,335 feet high. According to Wikipedia: The peak was originally called Mount Hubbard after General Thomas Hamlin Hubbard — the president of the Peary Arctic Club — by Belmore Browne and Herschel Parker. This name was revoked by the United States Geological Survey, which named the peak "The Mooses Tooth," a translation of the Athabascan name for the peak. The official USGS name does lack the grammatically correct apostrophe. The name of the peak comes from its structure: its summit ridge is a long, low angled ridge running roughly east-west for about a mile, with steep drops to the north and south. This gives the mountain a vague resemblance to a moose's tooth. Shot on a Canon 5D Mark III body with a 24-105mm f4 II lens at 58mm f8 1/2500th second ISO 1250 Tags . . . #Landscape #Nature #NatGeo #NatGeoAlaska #LifeOfAdventure #Rising_Masters #TeamCanon #NatureAlaska #SharingAlaska #UpperLeftUSA #PeoplesCreatives #AwesomeEarth #ThisIsAlaska #AlaskaIsBeautiful #LonelyPlanet #ic_landscapes #TravelAlaska #OurPlanetDaily #ResourceTravel #OptOutside #AlaskaLife #TheAlaskaLife #Instagram #Photography #LandscapePhotography #OutdoorPhotography #Mountains #MoosesTooth
This image was taken during a private winter landscape photo tour. It’s an aerial photo of the Chugach mountains after a fresh snowfall the night before.

Sometimes all you want to do is hang out on a frozen lake with a glacier. #glacier #mendenhallglacier #frozenlake #snow #winter
Was trying to take pictures of crystals and a skier came by... #macro #snow #ice #winter #skier
Finally got outside a bit today. #winter #snow
We made it down just in time to see team 1 come through .
Watching these athletes never gets old. 1,000 miles of travel ahead of them! Ya it’s February so we’re back to loving this Alaska life , even if it was still way too far below zero .
It takes a little bit of effort to lug three kids alone out in -18 degree temps but so worth it to watch the Yukon Quest athletes take off on their 1,000 mile trek . Simple incredible!
I just love having the Chugach mountains in the backyard of Anchorage. It’s just SO easy to get into the wilderness here. And there are so many unique places to visit in these mountains, the photo opportunities seem endless. This image was taken during a private winter landscape photo tour.

I’m on the last day of my winter photo workshop. We’ve had 5 days of spectacular weather. Thanks to Rust’s Flying Service in Anchorage we did some extra flying both on the way in and the way out of Winterlake Lodge for some aerial photos. This aerial image was made of the Cathedral Spires in the Kichatna Mountains in Denali National Park. Shot with a Canon 5D Mark III and a 24-105mm f4 II lens at 42mm f4 1/1000th second ISO 200.

I’m on my 5-day Sled Dog, Night Sky & Winter Landscape photo workshop. Sadly the Northern Lights 300 Sled Dog Race portion was cancelled, but we made it work with the help of the Alaska Mushing School and our friends at Winterlake Lodge. Here’s Carl Dixon, owner of Winterlake Lodge, “modeling” for the photographers at the lodge.

When I was leaving my friends house yesterday the moon was just rising over Thunder Mountain. I SO wished I had my camera with me! This phone pic makes it look like just a tiny dot. #snow #winter
This image of the Alaska State bird, the Willow Ptarmigan, was taken during a 6-day private winter photo tour in the Eureka area along the Glenn Highway. I don’t often get to photograph the bird actually on a branch. They are usually on the ground. So this is different for me. Shot on a Canon 5D Mark III body with a 100-400 mm f5.6 lens at 400mm f5.6 1/640th second ISO 400 hand-held. This image is cropped from the original.
This is what -30 degrees below zero looks like, just Incase you were curious ❄️

The greatest view to keep you focused and ready to go, still my favorite shot in Alaska #Alaska #sewardhighway #natgeo #natgeotravel #natgeoyourshot #natgeoalaska
I’m currently on a 6-day private photo tour with one gentleman. His quest is for Alaskan winter landscapes. So far we’ve done both land-based and aerial images of snow-clad mountains, glaciers, frozen-in icebergs, ice fog, Denali, and a fogged in derelict bridge. This early morning we were airborne before the sun in order to get first light on the Alaska Range—which turned into this beautiful shot. Tomorrow we’re off again! Shot with a Canon 5D Mark III w/ 24-105mm f4 II lens at 1/5000th second, f4, ISO 2500.
Temperate winter in a temperate rainforest. #winter #rainforest
My people. Life here is full of wild challenges , extreme darkness , unimaginable cold , but it has a way of toughening you up in all the right places . Indescribable beauty like this makes it ALL worth it . Alaska you’ll forever have our 💕
Bottom of the mountain green, top of the mountain THIS
This happened on our drive back from Anchorage last weekend . It looks like it’s heavily edited or even painted , but this was actually exactly how the sunset looked . We couldn’t pull over so this through the windshield shot is the best I got ! Purple mountain majesty never felt so real 🌄
It’s nice to be out shooting again after such a LOOOONG hiatus. I’ve been out of Alaska a lot with my son Ben at a rehabilitation hospital in Denver and just busy with business here in Alaska. This image was taken during a private photo tour this week here in Southcentral, Alaska.

A winter view of Denali and the Moose’s Tooth from the Southside. Not a lot of sunlight in winter here, but sure is good stuff. This image was shot on a Canon 5D Mark III body with a 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L lens at 200mm f/8 for 1/20th second at ISO 100 with a Singh-Ray warming polarizer filter.
Snowy overcast home. #snow #winter #iflyalaska
It’s that time of year again. The beautiful Bohemian Waxwings will be out in force raiding all the Mountain Ash trees in Anchorage.

It’s just Monday but I’m already counting down the days for weekend adventures and mountain views ⛰❄️

2am moonlit mountains on the last day of 2017. Your move @natgeo. #mendenhallglacier #canon70d
I haven’t had my best year with photography on instagram. The weather this summer was horrible and I haven’t traveled hardly at all. But I guess not every year can be epic. I’m still proud of these pictures :) #2017bestnine
