Hey, everybody. I have safely arrived in my new home in Alaska. The drive here was, without hyperbole, an epic experience that I will not forget. Partially because I took nearly 3000 photos over those 10 days!
Obviously, it's gonna take me a while to properly sort through all these photos; however, I wanted to share one particular moment that was particularly memorable. It was my first night physically in Alaska on my last stopover before reaching my destination. I pulled up to the B&B that I would be staying at this night, but before I got out of my car I decided to do some reading. When I did exit my vehicle, I looked up and immediately saw curtains of light. And it was amazing! I immediately scrambled to get my camera setup on my tripod and got to work capturing the experience.
Canon 5D4, 14mm, F2.8, 0.3 sec, ISO 6400
