Random Photo Memory: Denali – Changes in Latitude

A glimpse of one of the most spectacular states in the U.S. of A. union: Alaska.

On my first visit to Alaska (I’ve since made many more, geocaching with the “Cache ‘n Dash” team, as well as visiting my oldest daughter who used to live there) I was knee-deep in nature photog.  So naturally I dragged my beloved Benbo tripod north from Anchorage to Talkeetna snap, snap, snapping pics along the away.  I was truly blessed with a clear view of Danali’s majesty that day, and the hours verily flew by.  Happily clicking away amid the late afternoon sunshine, it wasn’t until I paused my shutter-frenzy long enough to realize I was utterly exhausted, that I looked at my watch and discovered…

It was MIDNIGHT in this land of endless days (and nights the other half of the year) – no WONDER I was tired!

Disclosure: Nope, the Benbo folks didn’t give me a freebie for extolling/linking to the Paterson site – I just happen to seriously believe it’s one of the BEST tripods on the Planet.  But hey – if you Benbo folks happen to see this, and want to ship me a new Trekker (alas I had to sell mine when I moved to this g-forsaken rice paddy), why – that’d be just fine with me!

  1. Beautiful! I’ve been to 27 of our fine states, but sadly Alaska isn’t among them. Hope to remedy that someday!

      I hear ya cosmoH – all this gallivanting about the globe, when there’s just so very much beauty and diversity among the U.S. 50. Interestingly, I’ve never counted the number of states I’ve been to, but yes – Alaska is surely one of the most unique and breathtakingly beautiful!

    We were in Denali for 2 weeks and only saw “Denali” 3 days out of the 14. It was soooo majestic (it dwarfed everything around it) we couldn’t take our eyes off it. Totally understand how you could lose track of time 🙂

    Nice lighting!

    I hope you get that free tripod. 😉

    • TravelnLass says:

      Thanks Paul. And about the Benbo – LOL, well it was worth a try, yes? 😉

      Truth is, it about broke my heart to sell my beloved Benbo tripod – just couldn’t take another blessed thing when I moved to Vietnam.
