Alaska Part 2 - Surreal Skies

During my week in Alaska, I was amazed with the incredible surreal looking skies; I spent many hours just staring in amazement.  In this "Part Two" set, I present a few of these skies as they were seen and captured on my trip.  These might look "Photoshopped" ... but they are not!  These are as they appeared with only minor exposure and tonal adjustments to more faithfully present the grandeur and magic of these skies.  This is Alaska!

As always, if there's something you love here, it's an email away from being on your wall.

Alaska Part 1

Hello everyone!
In my recent travels to Alaska, my lens was treated to an abundance of wonderful subject matter.  I'm going to be sharing some of my favourites over the coming days.
As always, if you take a shining to one of these and would like it on your wall, just reply to me and I can make that happen.

This first image was taken in Icy Point Strait, a small passage south of Juneau, Alaska where a fishing boat departs in the early morning.  

The second shot is a coastal view of Alaska's Glacier Bay National Park taken during rough seas and winds of over 90kts!  Yes, hurricane winds!  It wasn't easy trying to stabilize a camera in those winds!  
Though it's difficult to get perspective, these waves are actually huge.  The shot was taken from about 100 feet above the water, so the waves look small, but trust me .. they weren't!  

Hope you enjoy!

Intense Portraits

This past weekend, I did a natural light portrait shoot with a very unique subject; a 70 year old man with a unique character and the most intense eyes I have ever seen.  Hope you enjoy a few from the shoot!
