One of the nice things about visiting Southeast Alaska in the late spring and early summer is the length of time you have for taking pictures of the sunset. (That is, if it isn’t raining) This was late May outside Haines. The sunset went on for hours.
This was along the Highway outside of Haines, Alaska. There had been just a dusting of snow, then it cleared off and some heavy frost locked the snow in place. This is along the river valley, so these are poplars, alders and such. The river meanders across the valley, favoring quick growing varieties of tree. No 400 year old cedars growing along there.
This old truck isn’t dead, just sleeping. It’s a long nap. But it’s been a tough life being a truck up in an Alaskan sea town. Naps are well deserved.
This was taken on the Haines Highway, outside of Haines, Alaska. In the springtime, the sunsets last for hours. This provides the landscape photographer with time to drive around looking for the ‘best’ spot for getting a sunset photo. It stretches “The Golden Hour” into 3 or 4. If you can deal with the mosquitoes, it’s a wonderful place for photography.
This was taken a while back when I was returning from seeing my aunt up in Haines, Alaska: from the ferry getting close to Juneau.
That’s a great ferry ride: too bad I have a negative reaction about long boat rides right now or we might plan another trip.
