In Alaska right now on an assignment. Had the chance to see friends with my family beforehand. We used to live in Alaska, and still love many aspects of life up north. One thing we talk about is the Alaska factor.
The Alaska factor refers to how everything seems bigger and almost surreal up here. The mountains are big, the wildlife is big, the stories are big. You just never know what you will encounter here.
This great gray owl is a good example. We were driving up to Fairbanks and found this owl on the roadside. Great gray owls are not common, and seeing one in the lower 48 is a big deal. In Alaska they hang out on the roadside. I always travel in AK with my long lens attached, you never know what animal is around the corner. I was able to get a few shots of this owl before it flew into the thick boreal forest.
People have asked about the printing element at the Glacier Workshop. We will have an Epson printer and show you how to get the best prints from your images. Everyone will get a chance to print and take home some poster sized prints.
And speaking of Alaska, there is still room on the Denali Photo Workshop.
