Week 12 had me firmly on the ground in Alaska. It seemed like a long time since I had spent this much time at home. And even being home, I was on the road to Kenai.
My first welcome home was when Evan and I decided to do a evening hike and we were confronted with a bear warning sign in the park 100 yards behind our house. We don’t commonly get bears in our yard, but we have seen the evidence of them being in our yard.
The shot of the corks was something of a desperation shot. Some days, if I wait until the end of the day, I look around the house for some thing. Fortunately, we get great evening light in the living room, so it’s fun to look for shots around the house. It’s taken us the better part of four years to fill the jar. That was a lot of wine!
The airplane was shot in the Air Museum in Anchorage. I only had my new 50mm lens that day, so it was a challenge to shoot bit planes in cramped quarters.
The boat was shot at Summit Lake on the way to Kenai. I was feeling a little uninspired that day.
The shot at the top of the post was taken on Saturday. That’s my dad fishing. I realized that you can’t see his rod, and I liked the composition of this shot the best. The other shots with the rod were less interesting to me. I liked the position of the boat. I shot a bit that day because the fish weren’t biting so good. It was a great day with our dads out on the River.
The Sunday shot was on the return drive back to Anchorage at Summit Lake, where the previous boat shot was taken.
Monday was dinner at our house. Hmmmmm. Prime rib. This is another shot of Jodi and Evan. I really like the lighting. Jodi likes to tell me I have good equipment and that is why it looks so nice.
