A snow goose on the arctic slope, late spring.
The arctic is a tremendously beautiful place and nothing says arctic to me like fog, wind, and cold.
The Big Kahuna is the guy in the back snipping at the wing of the foreground Swan. He came into the lake that is off to the right, from the lake that is off to the left, and ran off 4 other swans. He has a mate on eggs on the lake off to the left but I guess he has a big territory.
The arctic evening have longs hours of beautiful golden light and this lady is soaking up some rays. The White Fronted Goose is a long time favorite of mine and is ubiquitous on the north slope.
A warm evening, a cold beer and a comfortable chair. Views courtesy of God himself.
The Snow Geese Junior Hockey team. They had a Hockey mom getting after them a little for what sounded like a lack of effort. You can’t blame her too much. Look at them; they look like they don’t have a care in the world.
The new Print of the Month is up on our website (www.fallriverphotography.com). This is a 6×17 panoramic of the Skookum volcano formations in Wrangle St. Elias National Park.
Water is opening up a little more but overall locations are still limited.
Next up…The new Upland Game Bird Sanctuary here in the Matsu Valley.
Seems early for swans but they might have come up from over wintering at Coopers Landing.
