Glowing Cliff Face by mikewheels
Glowing Cliff Face
One of the most iconic shots in the Grand Canyon is not located in the general tourist accessible parks but along a small stretch of very isolated park locations.  This one is Toroweap.  If you can make it down the 60 mile dirt road and pass the last 3 miles of rough terrain you can view the narrowest and most rugged whitewater in the entire canyon.  

Normally I am a nikon shooter but since my brand new d750 decided to die (ERR message) my friend let me use his Canon.  So I have to say GO CANNON!

Waves of Clouds by mikewheels
Waves of Clouds
Seeing a Haleakala Sunrise is one of the most magically nature experiences to have.  Days with good conditions allow you to see the sunrise over the clouds below you.  This is my second trip to this location which is typically mobbed with buses and people but even though there are hundreds of people with you there is silence until the sun peaks its light up and then the ohhs and ahhs begin.

His work is awesome isn't it? Mike just moved to Anchorage, and wants to know where to go shoot landscapes.
Mike, if you read this, Brandy is my daughter, lives in Anchorage, and knows the area well too. : )

Beautiful gallery :gallery:
Now, go back to Utah, before you snap up all the good pictures here too! >:\
(I kid!)
Welcome to Alaska and welcome to :iconalaskaaurora:!!! I live in the Mat-Su Valley and love to go out shooting with like minded shutterbugs. I don't get into A-town very often at all though, so if you're ever headed out this way, give a yell and maybe we can have coffee.

I would love to pick the brain for some good locations to shoot landscapes! I just moved up here for another job and am looking for a close place to get my feet wet in Alaska photography!
