Alaskan Nature Photography: Sunset Edition

It’s no secret I’m a night owl. I could probably count the number of sunrises I’ve actually seen on two hands… I might be exaggerating, because where I live here in Alaska in summer, sunrise and sunset aren’t too far apart. I’ve been awake to witness the rise about the time I’m going to sleep… […]

December Nature Photography

Wait up, hold up, it’s 20 of my favorite photos I took in December. I hope you enjoy. Super high tide. Foamy. At a rest stop in the mountains. I love the snow. More please. I like the seaweed in the crash. Almost a halo. Ice crystals in the air. Last moon of the year. […]

Helium

First Born

thoughts, like ribbons, wend and weave behind my watery eyes, beneath my skin occasionally, while sleeping, one lifts a fingernail and drops unceremoniously to glass-covered parchment just a slip of a thing, really upon waking, I may give it a name then send it out into a disinterested world from there, it becomes altogether, perhaps, […]

Spirit Rift – Collaboration

Sand grains massage our feet, Waves hit our ankles, toppling our sandcastles No, we’re not sad, but we’re definitely a little salty, Literally — our toes watered, sand-drenched-deep In the warmth of mother earth’s caress — Absorbing all that we can sea Past the sun-kissed vanishing point To us, the Sun sets how it rises; […]
