Alaskan Nature - Part 1

A semi-random collection of photos from my time living in Alaska.

Alaskan Nature - Part 1

Bear on a Log

Bear on a Log - f/6.3, 1/250th, 640 ISO

This photo was taken from about 100-150 feet away from the bear (through a fence!) using my newly purchased Sigma 150-600mm lens at around 300mm. This was at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center (AWCC). This trip was my first time shooting with this lens, and I must say, it was an absolute joy to use.

Musk Ox in Nome

Musk Ox in Nome - f/6.3, 1/250th, 3200 ISO

This was taken in Nome, using the same Sigma 150-600mm lens, however it was taken around  550mm. We had rented a Jeep to go exploring and looking for musk oxen, but I ended up just taking this shot it out the window of our Jeep in the parking lot of our hotel, the Dredge no. 7 Inn.

Wolf on the Prowl

Wolf on the Prowl - f/4.0, 1/800th, ISO 800

This was taken at the AWCC, with my Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II lens. This was taken approximately 15 feet away through a fence. I enjoyed watching the wolves play with each other, as they we acting just like domesticated dogs, and it was very fun to watch them sneak up on one another.

Summary

Hopefully you have enjoyed these, I am going to work through my backlog of photos and will be posting more!
