New Releases!



We got the new releases out on the 17th.  We have several so stop on by and check them out.  Easiest way to get there is to click on the Fall River Photography logo at the top of the blog and then select New Releases on the site.  Or you can go there from here. Above are “Vermillion Gold” and “Wrangell-St.Elias” from the collection.

Ice Field


We were coming back from Wrangell-St. Elias on the Glenn Highway and the ice field was actually visible from the highway very clearly.  This is pretty unusual and so we had to stop and get some photographs.  The scale in Alaska is so enormous that one loses perspective and frequently underestimates size and distances without a reference.  Looking at this photo it is hard to grasp how expansive this view is.  Come on up and see for your self.

Hamming It Up


A trip to Wrangell-St. Elias usually serves up Dall Sheep and bears and birds at the very least.  Occasionally we will see a moose and some swans and catch some fish too.  Well this trip yielded exactly one crazy squirrel.  This guy was all over the campsite and extremely busy gathering stuff for the winter and generally terrorizing our dog.  (Just one of our dogs Rojo.  Hairy is waaaaay to laid back to care about a squirrel unless it jumped in his mouth.)  He also just could not resist coming in and checking out the goods to see if we had anything on his winter stash list.  So we shot him.

(with the camera of course.)



I love these foxtails.  They are so beautiful in their color and the way they sway in the wind and catch the summer light.  The Wrangell Mountains were peeking out behind some very thick cloud cover prior to it raining.  This is a nice little settlement at the end of the Nebesna Road.  From here it is about 6 miles to an abandoned mine that makes for a great little day hike.
