Photos of the Week: 8/16/2018: A gallery of amazing photos from Alaska:
I don’t know of anyone who has gone to Alaska and hasn’t come back with the most amazing photos of the most gorgeous landscape photos in the world. I think that too many people miss this great country. The beauty, the harshness of it all, yet, so untouched still. This State of Alaska is so big, it still is yet so undiscovered. And it still seems that photographers have still yet found it to be new to them. They find the scenery new, and so beautiful, that every photo is breathtaking (to those who know how to capture it).
Let’s show you some of the most amazing photos you will see. And be aware that the wildlife here is not very welcoming yet. So, this is truly their country, and you are invading their beautiful habitat. So, enjoy this wonderful gallery of photos. “Photos of the Week” for August 16th, 2018.
After going through a complete summer almost, we can still take pictures of one of the largest glaciers in the U.S? Amazing that there is still so much ice left. And this rugged mountain scene is certainly breathtaking as well.
Alaska is known for having some of the largest Salmon in the world. World class fisherman come here to fish for these huge Salmon. When you get done cutting up this fish, you truly have salmon steaks.
Notice how big the lakes are here in Alaska. Often times I see pictures of lakes in Alaska, and I think it is an extension of the ocean. But, most of the lakes here are just big. It just gives you an idea that everything is big in Alaska.
You know, GM has a vehicle named Denali, after this beautiful park. Denali is one of the biggest National Parks in Alaska. A big park, and GM makes it one of their biggest vehicles. Interesting. But, what a beautiful area.
If you have not seen a moose before, they can certainly be intimidating. They are huge, and they don’t like you to be around. So, if you ever encounter one, make sure you keep your distance, and use a very big lens.
Oh yeah, Alaska’s north end of the state is cold. In fact, I think Santa lives up there somewhere.
It seems that most of the mountains in Alaska are just huge, always covered with snow, and always just beautiful. Most people around there say, you will never find mountains like this. And they are probably right.
The ever controversial oil pipeline. Yup, that Alaskan country has gold in that ground, and it’s called oil. And it’s piped down through Canada down to the U.S. Makes the countryside just pretty doesn’t it?
I am sure that this just one of many waterfalls seen throughout this State.
The Alaska Railroad is a Class II railroad which extends from Seward and Whittier, in the south of the state of Alaska, in the United States, to Fairbanks, and beyond to Eielson Air Force Base and Fort Wainwright in the interior of that state.
Oh, did I ever tell you that bears run fast? Yeah, they have 4 legs, and you only have 2. The only hope you have is that you run faster than the other person with you.
Here is a great example of the size of these moose. When their shoulder is higher than a car.
This you will see if you ever take one of those ocean cruises up through the Alaska island areas. Amazing to see a big chunk of ice just fall off a glacier.
There have been movies made about this dog race. Only in Alaska will you find this kind of amazing dog sled race that has become this popular. This is one crazy race for sure, and and endurance race for both dog and the human.
That water on that lake is so still, you would almost hate to throw a rock in it, or to take a boat on that lake in fear you would upset the beauty of the mirror image that is before your eyes. A true work of art that God has put there for you to enjoy.
Another new animal that grazes across the plains of Alaska and Canada. Their herds sometimes get into the thousands. This is the meat for a lot of predators in Canada, and Alaska as they roam, usually in such big herds, they seem easier to get when there are so many.
This is just a small amount of the great amount of photos that are available to see about Alaska. I think that the amount of photos that have been produced about Alaska is phenomenal. This State of Alaska is truly one of the most beautiful places in the world. I hope the people of Alaska enjoy what they have there.
