The year 2019 was a great year for photography overall. And the best of all I had the company of my wife most of the time. My wildlife portfolio expanded extensively. We traveled and hiked many miles in Alaska, toured New Hampshire, Virginia, and New Jersey while visiting family, trekked on the Castner, Canwell, Gulkana, College, and Worthington Glaciers. Additionally, we spent seven days in Denali National Park, including a 3-day bike-packing tour and took multiple hikes in the Chena River State Recreation Area and White Mountain National Recreation Area. In the summer we vacationed the Valdez area, including a cruise out to the Columbia Glacier, and we were destroyed by Devil’s Club on the Shoup Trail.
This is a compilation of my favorite photos from 2019 in chronological order. I’ll post links to all of my photos by season starting with Winter 2019 here.

Wickersham Dome in the White Mountains of Alaska is so windblown that the top is nearly bare of snow. We also hadn’t had much snow this year, so I’m sure that’s a contributing factor | Buy Print
