Wrangell, we stayed here in our Alaska trip for a couple nights, the main thing we wanted to do was to go to Anan Bear and Wildlife Observatory. While we were, we walked around this small town, population was 2,369 in 2010. It sure felt like we were at the far end of the world, one main store and one restaurant, but there are some very nice homes and charming fishing harbors, and I'm sure there would be so much more to see, looking at the location from the Google Earth Map, there are mountains all around and the water ways and glacier...
Wonderful landscape, the tiny boat underlines this feeling of space "last frontier", it looks not lost but it makes us aware of how isolated this place is and how little it needs to be in trouble. The rain curtain and slice of sunshine from under the cloud bank add a wonderful contrast to the otherwise nearly grey in grey. I am sure Wrangell is a special place. The Alaska folks are famous to be different. A little Northern Exposure feel in your other two images. Very good. My house sitting friends moved to Alaska after they had sold their place in GJ. They loved it up there, were sad to leave.
So many things to see, but lack of time... Nevetheless, a good feeling of the land's end with the vast area of ocean inhabited by this speedboat and the tiny peaks at the bottom, the cloudy sky with a Jacob's ladder is the cheery on the cake.
marvelous effects of light here. I liked the view of the rays of sunlight coming from the sky and the parallel lines in the sea and in the sky, framing the rounded mountains at distante. a special moment and a perfect image. TFS.
Lovely chiaroscuro in this peaceful image. We have friends that live in Wrangell for the summer, their place is right by the ferry landing so we spent quite a bit of time in this charming town. We even helped paint the bottom of his fishing boat on a tidal haul out. There was lots of pressure to complete the painting in the short time between tides. I do appreciate your continued presence on PF, I know it can't be easy with two young children and a job! HLJ x 4,, Pat
