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
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.

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!

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 🌄
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.
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
