From the archives

I shot this picture early one Sunday morning as I drove home from work. This is the view looking south down Gastineau Channel as you cross the Douglas Bridge.
It's views like this that make me appreciate living in such a wonderful, wild place.

In the news

I've been tapping my roots, digging into my archives of college knowledge. Yes, I've been writing and doing photography again - more than just for fun.
It feels wonderful. Ah, nothing like getting paid to do what you love. Seriously.
Below is an image I shot today for the paper. DIPAC employees were moving floats in Gastineau Channel as they prepare for spring runs of salmon which will surround the facility (pictured in the background) in masses.

Just the little guy.

Elias is growing fast. It seems we celebrate a new milestone daily and each moment is one to be savored. At the risk of sounding cliche - where has the time gone?
He's a joy - no doubt. Here's a few photos him - just Elias - just my little guy.
For now...

A moment to pause...

The snow has been falling in Juneau. Falling sideways, gently, coating everything in a soft blanket of white. As if the sky needs to breath, there is always a pause - an hour, maybe two where the clouds part and the sun sneaks beneath.
This time is always peaceful, for me. It's a time when I can't help but take a moment, look around, and take a deep breath.

Snow days

We recently received 15" of snow - overnight - here in the back yard.
For the mountains (and David) this was good news.
It certainly made for an exciting day on the mountain. Elias stayed at Grandma Suzi's while David and I found some turns up at Eaglecrest.
(sorry no photos)
Here's the first day of the storm:
