Chill Glaciers, Autumn Color, and Moose!

Our 14-day road trip in Alaska began in Anchorage. We traveled over 2,000 miles making 1-3 day stops in Anchorage, Homer, Seward, Whittier, Valdez, Glenn Allen, and Fairbanks! We traveled by car, float plane, ferry, and on foot to absorb the beautiful and wild Alaskan scenery. Photos by Jolly Sienda Photography.

The Bear Necessities by Air Boat and a Float Plane in Alaska!

Seeing spectacular scenery with friends in Alaska is a blast! Add a ride in a float plane, a ride on an air boat, and coastal brown bears looking for fish at low tide with a majestic glacier mountain background — what could be better, right!? This was an experience I will never forget! Thank you Rich, Karen, Eric, and our skilled guides for getting us close to the bears and wildlife life to photograph them in the wilderness at Cook Inlet, Kenai Peninsula, Alaska. Here are some of my favorite photos from August 25, 2019. Photos by Jolly Sienda Photography. Tour by Alaska Bear Adventures.

Wildlife Bird Photography & Landscape Photography at the Skagit Valley & Whidbey Island

Cool, pastel, winter skies…wind, clouds, and sun-breaks…golden cattails and marshland…and snow on the barren farmlands, are the perfect beacon for birds of prey! The farms in the Skagit Valley are dormant and waiting for spring; yet its a feast for birders and birds alike that survive off of the grubs, field mice, and fish in the fields and sloughs. Below are photos taken from our February 16-17 trip to Mount Vernon Skagit Valley and Whidbey Island.
