Water, water every where in all different looks and forms!

I have been looking over my Alaska photos and there is one common thing that runs through most of the photos, I seem to be obsessed with water. Of course there is water in some form every where you turn so it is not hard to have water be your subjected.

Here are four different water photos for your viewing pleasure! The first photo is of Emerald Lake (big surprise on the name) and it is actually in the Yukon Territory in Canada. The lake was perfectly still while we were there and I loved the clouds and trees reflected in it. Some mineral(the names escapes me) causes the water to look so green.

The second photo is of ice. Breakup had not occurred in many areas so there were quiet a few lakes and streams still covered or partially covered in ice.

The third photo is just of a random body of water but I liked how it looked with the trees and clumps of grass.

The fourth? I think that it is the Susitna river. A river in Alaska that is pretty well known for the fact that all 5 species of salmon run the river. There were places the river was huge, but this is a small fork of it.

So you can see, I am fascinated with water in all its various forms.

I apologize if the formatting is off or weird..I really don't know what the heck I am doing, I just wing it you know?


  1. Beautiful pictures! Absolutely stunning!

  2. Keep the photos coming Suz - they are AWESOME!

    I love this quote by Norman Maclean

    "Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs. I am haunted by waters".
