as I watch this autumnal dance, I slowly comprehend that change is beautiful, that dreams make life possible.
A highlight of my recent visit to Alaska was this sunrise over the tundra. This photo was made more than 100 miles north of the last tree, as the arctic alders and other shrubbery turned shades of blazing orange and red for as far as the eye could see. Autumn in northern Alaska is an exceedingly brief affair, typically ending well before the season even begins in most of the continental U.S. As with most of my recent landscape images, this is a 60 MP capture, to which flickr doesn’t really do justice, but do check it out LARGE ON BLACK if you have a moment.
