Monday I’m making my second journey to Alaska. It didn’t take long to realize all the beauty this place had to offer, and I’m excited to explore further in to it’s intricacies.

This is one of the areas that I’m certain I’ll spend more time, Eagle River Nature Center, in the valley of the Chugach Mountains. I had arrived to this nature area at near sunset, as this time of the year the sun was going down around 17:30. The air had a cold bite, but it was still, perfect for reflections in the beaver dam lake along the trail.
Cherry Blossom Season
While it was pretty white in Alaska (besides the northern lights of course), it’s been a color explosion here in Portland, along with the annual cherry blossoms, just about everything else is in bloom as well. I can’t wait for wildflower season!

On a tip from a fellow northern lights photographer up in Fairbanks, I went exploring at the Eagle River Nature Center my first night in Anchorage. The park was empty, the wilderness was silent. It was a perfect place to get lost in making photographs. This one turned out to be one of my favorites.
