Alaska Photo Redux

These are from my trip to Alaska last fall. I have been intending to consolidate them into one post and choose only the best for a while. Which was tough – because even the mundane pictures look gorgeous to me. These are from Lake Hood, Kincaid Park, Cook Inlet, and the home where I grew up in Wasilla.

The photo above, if memory serves, is not even edited at all.

The photo directly above is not even edited. That’s the original in late September Alaska at a hotel on Lake Hood and it’s just really that gorgeous.

I want to live in Kincaid Park. Beyond the trees you see here is the wide open and beautiful Cook Inlet.
This one is also not edited and perfectly great natural. You’ll know when I’ve edited… because it’s either completely black and white / Vanilla filtered.. OR the “color” notch is turned up all the way. Because I like it like that.
A scene from my father’s man cave.
heh heh heh heh.
Actual photograph of ducks taking off at the lake. I edited a few to make them look like paintings. Sometimes you just get lucky. Try scaring shit out of some ducks by running at them.
Eating corn I threw in the water. They eat out of my Dad’s hand.
My Dad’s plane. Natural / not edited.

    1. Thank you ma’am. There are a great many more photos of the ducks and of patches of grass….and clumps of birch trees…but I found it necessary to make an effort at controlling myself a bit here. πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‰πŸ™ƒ

    1. Glad you enjoyed. I wish I could take credit – but all that any person needs to do is just show up on Alaskan soil (summer/autumn), and literally just take a photo of anything you see, in any direction. Ha. πŸ˜ŠπŸ™ƒ

  1. Gorgeous photos! Happy I didn’t miss them. Alaska was my 50th state. My dad was a fan of the road trip, and I was able to visit my friend Misti who lived in Sitka for awhile. Your post brings back great memories.

    1. Glad you enjoyed. The summers are magnificent and it’s even more beautiful in May and June. Been thinking about moving back. But then I’d have to endure the winters!
      Ha. I’ve been quite enjoying hiking every morning at 9 a.m. in Washington State’s “eternal autumn” winter weather of 40-45 F in the days!!! Quite the departure from –15 to 20F daily on average in Alaska’s interior (Wasilla/Anchorage). So I’ll really have to mull this Alaska thing over more. It requires a cross country ski set, a lot of hot beverages, and true grit to adjust to that Alaskan winter after being away so long.


  2. Yes, I traveled there in July, a perfect respite from the Texas heat. This morning was in the low forties, and I said, β€œBrrr,” and delayed my neighborhood walk. Now it’s 55, so I’m making myself do it.
