Lofty Heights
Photo By Joshua Cripps

  • Title: Lofty Heights
  • State/Province/Region: Alaska
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Resurrection Bay
  • Nearest Town: Seward
  • Brief Directions: Go to Seward, AK and take a cruise to the Chiswell Islands
  • GPS Longitude: 149
  • GPS Latitude:
  • Best Season: Summer
  • Description: Alaska is one of those surreal places of the planet: a place that has scenery so breathtaking it seems impossible. The peaks in Resurrection Bay aren’t particularly high, but their sharp spires and glacier-covered flanks make them seem unassailable. I wanted to enhance this fairy-tale, unreachable quality of the mountains, so I placed the warmer, gentler, rocky slopes of the Chiswell Islands in the foreground of the photo to provide a stark contrast to those looming crags off in the distance.
  • Gear: Nikon D300, Nikkor 70-200 f/2.8, TC-1.7
