On this last trip to Alaska, I wanted to experiment around a bit with my photography. I decided to break out of my standard mode and try taking some scenery images with extreme lighting. The challenges were to successfully capture the feeling of the magical countryside and avoid dreaded sun glares in the images.
Our boat anchored overnight in protected coves. For the early risers among the travelers, the rugged landscape and morning mist near the water’s edge were a feast for the eyes. As the sun rose in the horizon and broke its rays across serrated tree lines, the light danced and swirled through the foggy mist, caressed by a gentle wind.
These magical moments only lasted a few scarce minutes. The sanctity of the scenes was profound. We were transported to another world - one filled with quiet, wilderness, and mesmerizing beauty.
