Favorite Photos, 2018

December 29th, 2018 by Carl D

Hey Folks

And so slides by yet another year. They seem to disappear more quickly than ever these days.

I thought I’d toss up a few images from the year. Mostly bears and northern lights as I was pretty busy with those trips this year.

Looking forward to 2019. We havea great bunch of trips we’ll be running.

Without further ado, I’ll throw some pictures up for you. Enjoy.

Before the Aurora

We arived at our spot early and waited for the aurora to fire up .. and while we were waiting, this happened.

Aurora borealis

Good things come to those who wait, eh? This aurora fire up late, and came back again even later. Always something of a treat to see.

Packrafting Nizina

A fun early season trip was packrafting Nizina River, The water levels were not too high, and we had a blast running through the canyons and camping beneath the amazing Mile High Cliffs. One in a million trip.

Brown Bears

We had a GREAT bunch of trips shooting brown bears this past summer/fall. I spent nearly 6 weeks leading tours and shooting on my own, in some favorite haunts of past years as well as some new locations as well. Awesome year.

Polar Bears

We were lucky to catch some great moments with these amazing animals in 2018. This trip is truly a fantastic opportunity to see and photograph the great Nanuk.

Bald Eagles

A few images from our weeks at Haines in November. Really a fun couple of weeks with some great people and lots of opportunities for bald eagle images. We had a blast.

I realize it’s a little heavy on the polar bears, lol. They’re just so amazing to photograph. Really, really a beautiful animal.

I’ll try to add a few more images over the next few months from other trips and activities. Packrafting, backpacking, rafting and more .. stay tuned.

In the meantime .. I and all of us here with Expeditions Alaska wish you the very best for the coming New Year. Travel safe, and enjoy.

Cheers

Carl
