Nature’s Watercolor

Like every other photographer, I’m drawn to reflections. This one caught my eye at the Eagle River Nature Center in Alaska. I loved the contrast between the bits poking above the surface of the water and the watercolor swirls beneath.


Everywhere you look. . .

Yes- it really is this pretty- everywhere you go, everywhere you look! Mountains, glaciers, water, flowers- Alaska is beautiful!

This was taken at the Eagle River Nature Center.

Brrrr!

I think all my Alaska photos should be titled Brrrr– it was cold. We didn’t spend a lot of time outside, but I did accompany Justin and Caitlin- and Penny, the golden retriever, on a quick walk at the Eagle River Nature Center, at the Chugach State Park. I saw a very different scene from my visit in August!

That’s ice on the trees; the only snow was on the mountains. I think this photo was taken around three- thirty.


Blast from the Past (well, August)

This is overlooking part of the town of Eagle River, outside Anchorage, Alaska, where our daughter’s family lives. In the distance you can see a bit of the Knik Arm- and an overcast sky, and in the foreground is fireweed, which was everywhere during our visit. We are returning to Alaska to spend Thanksgiving- and I’m sure it will look quite different!

Shades of Green

Alaska is SO GREEN- at least in the summer. This was taken at the Eagle River Nature Center on our walk with the kids.  As I look ahead to Fall, I am wondering what it looks like there now. I am imagining some golds among the greens.
