About a week ago I got back from a quick trip to Alaska. First time visit for me. We were there for a wedding, but of course we took the opportunity to roam around a little and discover what Alaska had to offer – an abundance of nature and wildlife, and some really nice small-towns spread among fjords, white caped mountains and gigantic glaciers and ice fields. Unnecessary to say I took a lot of photos. Although we got to see all kinds of wildlife, ranging from humpback whales, orcas and sea lions to sea otters, moose, eagles and all kinds of other birds, it was more than anything the vast fields of ice digging their way through mountain ranges and throwing themselves into the fjords or lakes, that impressed me. Coming close to a glacier brings forth a sense of prehistoric era, of gargantuan, almost threatening organisms and of coldness, slow-moving danger and respect. The photos shown here are taken around the Kenai Peninsula and processed in Photoshop to create some of the feeling the glacier struck with me. This will not be my last time visiting Alaska.
