From April until September, 2011, I was living and working in Southeast Alaska. Home base was in Juneau and I was a Forest Service naturalist aboard the M/V Malaspina, an Alaska State ferry, running between Juneau and Haines and Skagway daily (the day boat). There are many sights along the way including marine mammals, mountains, lighthouses and small towns. I am working on marine mammal photography this summer as I try to follow a pod of six orcas - a male, two females, two juveniles and a calf. We also see humpback whales, the zippy Dall's porpoises and Steller sea lions. Harbor seals and harbor porpoises are here but elusive. The summer proved to be an amazing experience and I am sharing my travels through photography.
