Alaska photos

Anybody interested in sharing your pictures of Alaska? I've been scanning some old pictures lately and thought they might be of interest. Mods, if this is better placed in the travel photography forum, go for it.

Anyway, a few oldies...

Bethel, 1971



St. George (Pribilofs) around 1978



State Fair rodeo, Palmer, around 1983



Somewhere along the Denali Highway, around 1981



Iliuliuk Bay, Unalaska, around 1979

Gardyloo, Thanks for sharing the vintage photos from Alaska. Alaska is one of my favorite destinations.

Here are a few from my archive:

Truly stunning photographs!

You should probably stop though... you are raising my expectations for my upcoming trip unreasonably high. This can only lead to disappointment.

Gardyloo,
Super pics in landscape diversity. Were all of these scanned from slides?

I particularly like the shot of Akutat Bay (?)

I include a couple from Denali:

Beautiful shots. Unfortunately all my pics of Denali got lost some years ago, it's a real gap in my coverage.

The Yakutat Bay and Juneau cloud shots were taken with digital equipment; all others are scans off slides, hence the relatively low quality. In a couple of cases the colors have started to fade or change, e.g. Akutan and the Denali Hwy. shots.

Here are a couple more, FWIW -

Unalaska Orthodox cemetery, now relocated



Mirror Lake, between Anchorage and Palmer





Susitna Valley

Gardyloo,

Thanks.

The fall foliage shot at Mirror Lake was .

I was there briefly when the weather started to change swiftly from bad to worst. I never had a chance to get any shot like yours. I was looking for a reflection shot of Mt. McKinley on the lake (I know of the name change!). Didn't get that either

Spectacular; keep 'em coming, guys!

allset2travel, that fall Denali shot is amazing. My favorite time of year in the park. That color palette is just something you don't get many places.

I have thousands all of substantially lower quality than you guys have posted, but I lack the time to sort through them. If I come across any worth anything, though, I'll try to remember to share them here...

Those color filters on some shots had me thinking there was something wrong with my video card. Am glad I didn't try to adjust.

My gear is limited to Canon PowerShots, alas, and it could get to where smartphones will take better pictures soon. Here's a "gold on gold" from mid- to late September near Fairbanks. There's a brief window where aspen forests along the roads are a sea of green (evergreens) and gold (mostly aspens). Combine that with about a 10-15 minute period of pre-sunset sunlight and you get a gold-on-gold effect.

Fall Foliage image from Mirror Lake Alaska

Hope I didn't violate any FT rule by waking this old thread.
