P-51 Mustang by mikewheels
P-51 Mustang
Heritage aircraft are always fun to watch fly.  This is a P-51 Mustang which was first used during WWII.

Thunderbirds by mikewheels
Thunderbirds
The Air Force's Thunderbird F-16s sit preparing for their show at the Nellis AFB airshow.  Precision is very important with all aspects of the Thunderbird team whether it is in the air or on the ground.

Fire Wave by mikewheels
Fire Wave
This newly disclosed area of the Valley of Fire State Park near Las Vegas, NV was previously hidden from the general public.  It is nice to see the area open now for all to enjoy.  It is much less interesting than its cousin located in Arizona but much easier to get to.  It kind of reminds me of bacon...

Zion Reflections by mikewheels
Zion Reflections
After much research I finally found this area in Zion National Park luckily with water!  It was much easier to find that I thought and can't wait to explore the rest of this area sometime soon.  Zion has a wealth of great areas to explore off the beaten path.

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!

Well that all depends on what you like to do! Hatcher's Pass (Out here) is great if you're not into hiking, and Eagle River road, Girdwood, Portage, as well though all of these locations have trails if you ARE into hiking. There are gorgeous views everywhere you turn, it all just depends on the light, really. If transportation is limited, catch a bus to Far North Bicentennial Park along Campbell Creek [link]
Or out to Kincaid Park, Earthquake Park (Especially gorgeous after dark, if not very safe). Be sure to carry bear mace with you though, and stay alert! It seems more people are injured by bears near the "big city" than anywhere else. Learn to identify signs of a bear's cache, such as foul odor, disturbed forest debris, tufts of hair, etc. and if you notice them LEAVE the area IMMEDIATELY. - and DON'T whistle while you hike - predators mistake that for the sounds of some small game animals.
