May 17: Photo Excursion

I am back from Colorado. I am going to continue with my Alaskan series and conclude the first day before I decide what to post next.

After the beaver pond, our guide took us back on AK Rt 8, this time a little further from Cantwell, next to a half frozen (or rather, half unfrozen) lake. Although i was able to locate it on the map, I could not find its name.

The entry in the workshop is:
Our Photographer Guide: This is a portrait of our photographer-guide who was shooting away with us.

17 Mayıs: Fotoğraf Gezisi

Yarı Donmuş Göl

Colorado’dan döndüm. Alaska serime devam edeceğim ve daha sonra ne yükleyeceğime karar vermeden önce ilk günü sonuçlandıracağım.

Kunduz göletinden sonra rehberimiz bizi AK Yol 8’e geri götürdü, bu sefer Cantwell’den biraz daha ileride, bir yarım donmuş (ya da, daha çok, yarım çözülmüş) gölün yanına. Harita üzerinde bulabildiğim halde ismini bulamadım.

Bonjour, cher Murat,
Des paysages à couper le souffle, la beauté est fort bien mise en image.
Il est bien difficile de détacher son regard de ces vues magnifiques.

Hi Murat,
Great landscape with these slopes with snow, good effect with the light reflection on the FG, tfs.

Hello Murat,
I wonder how this photo trip will improve your photographic skills. Excellent composition with the horizontal layers of the unfrozen lake, frozen lake, spruce forest and high mountains. Spectacular view.

Kind regards MAlgo

Witaj Murat!
Wonderful landscape, view is impressive.
Excellent framing, colors and light.
Very well done.
Warm regards.

Hello Murat,
I like the horizontal layers of this photo, every section having its on structure and texture. The snow-clad mountains are the most eye-catching part, but for the impact of the composition even this area is heavily dependent on the others. It's quite a stunning image.

Hello Murat,
Four tones of grey... wonderful landscape picture from Alaska.
Good scale, depth and clear visibility.

Hi Murat

A subtle reflection of the snow-capped peaks in the rippled fg water gave an impressionist view. Good sharpness and I guess swimming is out. I like the many horizontal layers here. Tfs!

Hello Murat,
It is a very hot day here at the moment, so it is very pleasant to view a photo of a frozen lake and snowy mountain slopes, which look wonderful in this soft lighting with a nice patch of warm sunshine in the centre.

Hi Murat
Another great Alaska scene with awesome snow peaked mountain range and nicely detailed with good layering effect and some lovely tones. A cool shot, Congrats
Best regards

Hello Murat,
Very impressive nature scenery, attractively composed in several horizontal layers.
Wonderful with the dark forest between the snowy peaks and the ice on the lake.
I wonder if it was very cold there. I have the impression the picture was taken in the evening.
Best regards, Paul

Great photo of the attractive mountain landscape, the spots of snow add a lot of graphical effects to the photo, very well seen
regards Ryszard

Hi Murat,
this is breath taking!
The light was brilliant and the whole area is overwhelmingly beautiful.
I could spend hours in a place like this taking hundreds of photos and observing how the light is changing.
It seems you were taking part in a photographing tour which sounds even better because it means people were not rushing but enjoying the photo spots.
And what a great contribution to TrekEarth: reportage from a place which everybody heard about but not many seen before!
Excellent work,
