Photographer's Note

The Alexander Archipelago is a series of islands which sprawl along the northern west coast of British Columbia and make up the southern panhandle of Alaska. These islands, protected by their masses from the open Pacific Ocean, disrupt the swirling weather which forms in the Gulf of Alaska and cause it to dump an average of thirteen feet of rain a year on this temperate rainforest. As a result, our world is lush and green, and our feet are usually wet.
