Lunar Eclipse

So Alaska is always a TRIP when I come home for Christmas. There are many familiar people and places – it definitely feels like home – but Alaska sometimes seems like a dream it’s so beautiful. I don’t understand how any of the Californians I now reside with have Christmas at 80 degrees and green. Today it was an awesome 5 degrees and theres nothing like a little climate change (especially coming from Cambodia and Thailand) to make your body entirely confused!

I woke up the other morning and my friend texted me saying there was a lunar eclipse happening soon. I asked her when and she responded “NOW!” =P So I grabbed my 70-200mm 2.8L IS and got some shots while I could. I miss you all in California, so here’s an Alaskan hello! (Yes, I do live here about a month and a half out of the year!!)

The mountain above is called Mount Susitna (Sleeping Lady) and it can be seen from almost anywhere in the city. It’s VERY Anchorage-ian and is a trademark of being home =)

That’s our downtown =) I’ve never been that impressed with it (Sorry Alaska!)… but this year I did a number of fashion and engagement shoots downtown and I’m now in love.

The picture above looks like something out of Lord of the Rings but I had to include it =) its Mount Denali, which is the tallest mountain in North America and a 6 hour drive away! You can still see a “hush” of a moon in the left. Pretty sick!

Bobby Earle - Why haven’t I come to Alaska with you yet?!

Josh Newton - Dude, I have no idea why you haven’t!! I mean its only one of the most beautiful places in the world, and you’d get to see TONS of epic animals up here! One day Bobby, one day =)

Brigdette - You are amazing. You have the talent I long to have. Looking at all your photos inspire me. Doesnt seem to also help, that you are a fellow Alaskan. I am from Chugiak/Eagle River. I found your blog via Delightfully Tacky….just today I found hers too. Gotta love product Friday’s. I am living it up in Europe right now…so I look forward to getting glimpses of our spectacular home state.

P.S..for all those people that have never been there, you should get some fireweed feilds pics up. Those are always pretty.
