I’m on a nice streak of two for two, with consecutive months of having two of my images published in Alaska magazine. This time their editors nicely displayed my image of photographers photographing the Chilkat River at sunrise as a double page spread.
The photo is a good example of photographing not just the subject at hand (the sunrise) but also any activity going on. In this case I stood back from the small group of photographers for a different, more storytelling image. The image is a good example of the beautiful, but very cold, early mornings I endure when I photograph bald eagles in late fall on the Chilkat River near Haines, Alaska. It also is an example of the importance of getting up early to catch the special morning light. The special light lasted five minutes or less. I remember thinking to myself while walking back to my car and passing late arriving photographers, “You folks are WAY too late. Skip your precious coffee next time.”
The other photo published accompanied the magazine’s feature, “Where in Alaska?” I can’t tell you much more about it because that would defeat the purpose of the feature. 😉
