A dreamy black and white photo of a path through a wooded area with tangles of trees and fallen branches along it. A small border collie mix pup is in the distance in soft focus and running towards the camera. Taken with my Nikon F3 HP using a Tokina 35-105mm lens and black and white Ilford 400 HP film.
Calm waters reflecting the pinks and blues of an Alaskan sunset stretch into the distance where, on the horizon, mountains roll far into the distance in layers. The sky is full of low clouds that look slate blue and periwinkle, pink and pale blue, salmon and tangerine. The sun is a lemon smudge behind some clouds.
This photo was taken from the deck of the small 24-passenger vessel on which we toured southeast Alaska. It was July 3, 2016--five years to the day since my father passed away. My father traveled the world for business, but never had the chance to see Alaska. I know he would have loved it. I didn't do anything to enhance this image. This is simply how stunning Alaska can be. Taken with my Nikon D5100 on manual, 55mm, f/4, 1/100.

Photographs of the pond surface are a constant theme in my photography.
