2018

FOR ME, 2018 WAS THE YEAR OF RAISING MY FIRST CHILD. BEING A PARENT TO A NEWBORN, THE PRIORITIES CHANGE FROM WORK AND HOBBIES TO CONCENTRATING ON BRINGING UP YOUR CHILD SAFE AND SOUND. REGARDLESS, I MANAGED TO HAVE TIME FOR PHOTOGRAPHY AND MANY OTHER ACTIVITIES THAT I LOVE. I EXPLORED AND PHOTOGRAPHED ALASKA BY HIKING, BACKPACKING, GLACIER TREKKING, SKI TOURING, CROSS COUNTRY SKIING, BIKING AND BY PLANES, BOATS, RV AND CAR. MOST OF THESE TRAVELS TOOK ME TO ALREADY FAMILIAR PLACES THAT I LOVE. IN ADDITION, 2018 WAS THE YEAR WHEN I FINALLY MADE ONE OF MY DREAM TRIPS COME TRUE. AFTER YEARS OF RESEARCHING AND DREAMING, I WAS FINALLY ABLE TO MAKE THE FIRST VISIT TO ONE OF THE MOST REMOTE PLACES ON THE PLANET, THE ARRIGETCH VALLEY LOCATED IN THE GATES OF THE ARCTIC NATIONAL PARK. A TWELVE DAY TRIP THAT WE TOOK INTO THIS PLACE ABOVE THE ARCTIC CIRCLE BY BUSH PLANE AND BACKPACKING WITH THREE FRIENDS WAS ONE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS OF MY TRAVELS INTO THE BACKCOUNTRY AS FAR AS I CAN REMEMBER. THIS PLACE WAS ONE OF THE MOST EPIC PLACES I HAVE EVER SEEN. GETTING THERE WAS TIME CONSUMING, EXPENSIVE AND PHYSICALLY DEMANDING. I'LL BE RELEASING THE PHOTOS FROM THE TRIP ON THIS PAGE SOON. ON THIS PAGE I HAVE ALSO CREATED GALLERIES TO MY TOP TEN FAVORITE SHOTS FROM 2018 AS WELL AS MY FAVORITE ABSTRACTS. IT WAS ANOTHER ADVENTURE FILLED YEAR THAT I CAN LOOK BACK  WITH GRATITUDE. THANKS FOR TAKING TIME TO CHECK IT OUT.
