Behind the scenes of this photo
Taken along the Turnagain Arm of the Cook Inlet near Girdwood, Alaska, on January 6th, 2014
One of the coolest things about photographing Alaska in the wintertime is that the sun barely gets above the horizon. So while there isn’t much light in general, what light there is almost always has a golden hour character to it. Which means that in places like the Turnagain Arm of the Cook Inlet you can get a six-hour long sunset. Good light at 2 pm? I’ll take it!
