Moose on Potter Marsh Flats

Photo of the Month This morning I drove down to Potter Marsh for the swans and some mist amongst them. Instead I found this morning munching moose family on the flats on the west side … Families should eat together more often, don’t you think? With the moose in shadow and the fully lit Fire Island and Alaska Range behind, I was hoping for the first rays of direct sun before they left, but it was not to be… the trick here was to balancing the shade with the background. Bracketing my exposures helped compensate the difference in light values.

Alaska Wildlife Photography

The natural world has its own rhythms of seasons, behaviors and light. Patience and preparedness are probably the most important in wildlife photography, as you’re working by an entirely different set of rules. These wildlife images are available for fine art printing, just contact me for pricing.
