Back in Anchorage to guide the 2013 Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race Start tour, and to share with my guests some of the incredible beauty of Southcentral Alaska, like Mount Redoubt volcano pictured here at sunset.

Turnagain Arm Sunset

The warm mid-winter light illuminates the sky above Turnagain Arm at sunset. The word ‘photography’ is made of two Greek words essentially meaning ‘writing with light’, and in the absence of  the warm winter light I have come to appreciate moments like these and how important light is in my work as a photographer.

Aerial View Of Turnagain Arm At Low Tide

Low tide in Turnagain Arm exposes the mudflats near Anchorage. Turnagain Arm is home to one of the biggest bore tides in the world (10-feet in height). The Turnagain Arm bore wave is the only one that occurs in the far north and the only one bordered by mountains, making it the most unique and most geologically dramatic bore tide in the world.

Turnagain Arm

undefined

Turnagain Arm south of Anchorage has the second highest tides in North America after Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia. Each time the tide goes out it exposes extensive mudflats which are composed of glacial silt carried down by rivers. These mudflats exhibit a quicksand-like quality and it’s extremely dangerous to venture out onto them during low tide because of the very real possibility of becoming seriously stuck.
