Recent calving activity at the Mendenhall Glacier has left numerous large icebergs like the one pictured floating in the lake.  The glacier face is in the background.

Another more recent version of the 5/13/2007 photo of the week, this one taken on 6/1/2007 and from a different angle, looking east towards the Coast Mountains and Eagle Glacier, which descends from the Juneau Icefield.  I guess the only thing missing from this one is a whale!
Good Day on the Water Part II

The annual bloom of Lupine on Point Louisa draws me to this particular place every June.  Looking east towards Auke Bay and the Coast Mountains.  Taken on 6/8/2007.

Roots - Tongass National Forest

As the title suggests, a curious Marmot (looking for food, no doubt) that came close enough for me to photograph with a 200mm lens.  I only had time to take one shot before he took off into the woods.
Curious Marmot

Taken on a cloudy June afternoon, looking South towards Douglas Island (on the far left) and the mountains of Admiralty Island.  The tide was coming in so fast the spot I was shooting from was covered by water in less than 5 minutes.
Incoming Tide

What can I say, lots of whale photos lately because it's whale season!  This was a group of Humpback Whales bubble net feeding with the scene beautifully backlit.  Taken on 7/17/2007.
Backlit Bubble Net Feeding

A humpback whale emerges from the depths of Chatam Strait in the waters of Southeast Alaska during a feeding ritual known as Bubble Net Feeding.  Such truly amazing creatures...
Up From the Depths

This summer has produced an incredible display of blooming flowers, in this case yellow Indian Paintbrush and some leftover purple Lupine, which usually don't bloom at the same time.  Taken near the local Boy Scout Camp and Eagle River.
Indian Paintbrush & Coast Mountains

I recently had some fun experimenting with long shutter speeds on a windy summer day near a patch of a local plant called Devil's Club (if you've ever had the misfortune of tangling with this plant while hiking around the Juneau area you'd know why it's so properly named).
Devil's Club Motion

I also had some fun recently experimenting with some new software that allows you to take several different exposures and combine them to show a wider range of light, closer to what the human eye sees.  A camera cannot capture some scenes like this in just one shot.
Steep Creek & Mendenhall Glacier

Classic Juneau view of the Mendenhall Glacier with fireweed in the foreground.  It's hard to put a new spin on this scene, as it's been shot from seemingly every angle, but I gave it a shot...
Mendenhall Glacier and Fireweed

A close up shot reveals the intricate patterns and bathing golden light displayed by a dense stand of backlit aspen trees.
The Golden Hour

With so many photos to choose from on my visit to Guanella Pass near Georgetown, Colorado, I chose one more backlit shot taken in one of many beatiful stands of aspen trees I encountered that day.
