Brown Bear in Lupine
Brown Bear in Lupine

My favorite type of photograph is a hybrid between wildlife and landscape, in which an animal can be featured as part of a beautiful landscape. And this photo to me embodies this duality perfectly, as this subadult brown bear rests amongst the beautiful arctic lupine wildflowers. Taken in Lake Clark National Park, Alaska. June 2019.

Snake River in Color
Snake River in Color

This iconic angle was made famous by Ansel Adams. I often wonder what he would do with color had the technology been available to him during his day. This sunset was especially colorful and made for some epic contrast against the cool blue mountains. Taken in Grand Tetons National Park, October 2018. Photo by Ben Blankenship.

Alaska in a Nutshell

This image, to me, perfectly embodies what is to travel in the backcountry of Alaska; float planes and grizzly bears! This mother bear and her three cubs spent a lot of time walking around the parked float planes. Taken in Katmai National Park, Alaska. July 2019. Photo by Ben Blankenship.
