Photographer's Note

Mountains on Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula.

I know that a good photographer patiently takes the majority of their pictures at dawn or dusk, but I just can’t be bothered! When I am travelling, I would rather do 10 things in a day, than wait for the perfect picture, therefore I never know where I will be before I run out of time, and call it a day. Luckily in Alaska there is a lot of sunlight, and the sun takes a long time to set. The ‘magic hour’ is about 3 hours long I guess. I love the horizontal lighting on these mountains and the clouds. I got lucky with this picture and did not need to edit anything. I think the waves add foreground interest, but the trees on the right are a little burnt out.

If someone thinks of a better crop or clones a whale / dinosaur in the foreground let me know.
