Talkeetnas on a winter morning.
Lens: HD PENTAX-DA 55-300mm F4.5-6.3 ED PLM WR RE Camera: Pentax KP Photo Location: Matanuska-Susitna, Alaska ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/250s Aperture: F10

This is of the Talkeetna Mountains as the sun rose above the Chugach Mountains at 11am to bask them in the warming light of a 7 degree (f) morning. This is a four photo stitch.

Right now we have about 5.5 hours of sun here and will get a whole second more come the 22nd. As you travel north it diminishes very quickly. Then again, in six months folks will be mowing their lawns come midnight.

Compass work would be a skill to as .5 degrees will send you miles off course, within a short distance. Do you carry a firearm when you visit these wilderness scenes, as in the last frontier. Admire your courage to capture true outback photography.

I generally do carry .44 Smith or a Marlin .450 if just hiking about, depending on what I'm packing and why I'm out there. Though I have had many "interesting" encounters over the passed 50+ years, I have only once had to take an animal.

Thank-you for the reply...I could see how a person could become vulnerable, especially when eyeing up a photograph and peering into the camera lens....that loss of attention to your back could make a difference, unless another individual is standing as a watch-guard. Interesting reply...Cheers. Many continued uneventful excursions.
