Seward Sunrise

The winter sunrises in Seward are absolutely wonderful.  The sun is low in the sky and the mountains catch the light just beautifully.  There were several dozen mergansers out on the shore and they took to the water and complied nicely with my desire for this composition.  The sea otters were playing up the shore line and there was a cormorant or two in the mix.  The weather was definitely warm for Alaska standards but we get our share of warm winds that blow in and take the edge off the winter.

Seward Dry Dock


I LOVE going to the dry dock in Seward.  We went down there a couple of weeks ago for some photos and had a fantastic time.  I love boats to begin with and then I love old stuff so a bunch of beat up old fishing boats gets me going.  We spent an evening and morning at the dock and got a ton of eagle photographs that day too.  A lot of young eagles lacking the expected characteristic “bald” head were waiting out the weather in trees and light poles and stumps, whatever they could find.  Mergansers were found quite easily and of course the ubiquitous gull was hamming it up just about everywhere.  We saw a couple of other water fowl that I have to look up, don’t know their name, but they were beautiful birds.  We stayed at Miller’s Landing by the way, if you are looking for a place to stay in the area one of these days.  They are good people and their offering for accomodations is quite diverse and always clean.
