Ice and Snow Winter Photography

Hi friends, here’s another little glimpse at my little bit of Alaska. It was fairly chilly, relatively speaking, for a few weeks but now it’s been in the warm high-teens to mid-twenties (Fahrenheit degrees)… excluding wind chill of course. I can’t believe how warm it’s been and how little snow we’ve gotten. I hope that […]

Winter Photos January 2021

Hi friends, I hope you’ll like this batch of photos from my corner of rural Alaska. What lovely winter weather we’re having ❄️💕 Ice wall by the highway near Anchorage. Almost home, about a mile to go… High tide ocean ice flow. Fresh bunny trail. Local volcano, resting in the evening sun. Sunset from my […]

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. […]

As We Close This Year 2020

Dear friends, Here we are again, at the end of another year. For some it has lasted forever and for some it was *blink* and it’s over. Personally I fall into the latter category. This year I have accomplished so much making my dreams a reality. I’ve strengthened a few friendships, and had to walk […]

You Don’t Know Me!

I was having a conversation with someone who claims to “know me”…. let’s just say the score wasn’t very high. Favorites: Flower – dandelion Animal – orca Smell – lavender Drink – water with lemon Food – pumpkin Season – autumn Sounds – rain and the ocean Constellation – Orion esp the Orion Nebula Time […]

Ocean Scenery

There aren’t many places in the world that make me happy more consistently than the ocean. Or, perhaps, the beach by the ocean (because let’s face it, I’m not out in the water… it’s Alaska, for Pete’s sake). It’s the smell in the air. The wide open spaces. The sounds of seagulls and eagles screeching. […]

Wild Animals

It’s not that I really have to battle any real wild animals. I live rurally. Pretty rural. Out in the wilds of Alaska. But they’re out there… I know they are. Oh wait….: I mean honestly… this is what I primarily see. Mostly wild. I say mostly because to be honest, if they hear my […]

Gone Fishin’

I’m around… sort of. Summer in Alaska. Busy. I’ve been the last few days doing a type of subsistence fishing called set-net. It’s moderately labor intensive but worth it to teach others the “old ways”. So here are a few pics, should my view interest you. Mostly silver salmon, which is exactly what I wanted. […]
