Admiralty Island Sunset

Douglas and Admiralty Island - Photo (c) Laurent Dick - Wild Alaska TravelI shot almost straight into the sun to get this silhouette of Admiralty Island at sunset. Silhouette photography is when you shoot a subject with backlight so that you only show its outline. As the subject is thrown into shadow due to the position of the lighting, you can’t see texture, you can’t see its three-dimensional form, and you can’t even see its color. What you are left with is the shape alone.

Tough Future For Alaska's Polar Bear Cubs

Alaska Polar Bear Sow With Cubs - Photo (c) Laurent Dick - Wild Alaska Travel

A polar bear sow and her two nine month old cubs wander around the barrier reefs near Barter Island in northern Alaska. The chances for a newborn to survive the first year is only 30%  because of environmental stress related to climate change as well as cannibalism and other factors. These cubs might make it!

Surfing In Juneau

When one thinks about surfing in Southeast Alaska, Yakutat immediately comes to mind, but not Juneau. However, strong north winds sometimes create wind swells  in a few places where local surfers can ride the waves. Here, Lance Lawhorne of Juneau rides a wind swell in Favorite Channel near a point break at Shrine Island north of Juneau. The combination of cold water and air temperatures make wearing a hooded wetsuit as well as booties and gloves a must.

Ephemeral Nature

I love the ephemeral nature of icycles, reminiscent of stalactites, that dot many of the rock cliffs around Juneau at this time of the year. They are never complete, or perfect, but in state of constant change, evolving as ice or dissolving into water.  It reminds me a bit of the ephemeral nature of our human condition. We are never complete and perfect, but always changing, adapting and evolving in our life journey.

Ice Bar At The Chena Hot Springs Aurora Ice Museum

One of the “hottest” and “coolest” attractions in Alaska coexist side by side at Chena Hot Springs Resort outside of Fairbanks. After dipping into the natural hot springs rock lake in 106 degrees F. waters, you can cool off in the Aurora Ice Museum with a constant ambient temperature of 20 degrees F.  for a tour of the largest year-round ice environment in the world made from over 1,000 tons of ice and snow. The museum features amazing ice sculptures made by Fairbanks ice carvers Steve and Heather Brice. Their incredible ice art work is breathtaking to behold along with the beautiful ice chandeliers above which change color every six seconds to mimic the Northern Lights. After touring the museum, you can relax on caribou fur covered ice stools at the ice bar and enjoy an Appletini in your very own ice carved martini glass, your souvenir to take with you. Cheers!
