Blue hour in cantwell. Denali scene here in the distance!
Now that's a mountain range! From right to left we can see Denali (20,310'), Hunter (14,573'), and Foraker (17,402'). Check out more family pictures from our trip to Talkeetna @wanderingwouks.
A sunrise this past September in the mountains. I really enjoy the simplicity of this scene!
Detail from the next painting that is being born. I bring you the legendary Kitchatna Spires with this one. I almost did it in one sitting! But now I must sleep... as it's been a long day of freighter flying before this (propane, Jet A, building supplies, etc)...and I must fly tomorrow. Painting in between flying. #alaskarange #denalinationalpark #pilotartist #mountainartist
Some incredible Fata Morgana on the Alaska Range this past Wednesday. Hard to capture with an iPhone. The fact it came out this well tells you it was awesome. If you don’t know what Fata Morgana is, there is your google assignment! Just another bit of magic of the far North!💫

North America's tallest mountain, Denali, was glowing in low angle afternoon light yesterday. This was taken approximately 130 miles from the base and you can see why it is the steepest vertical rise in the world, ascending from sea level to more than 20,000 feet in that relatively short distance. The mirage at the base of the mountain, known as Fata Morgana, is caused by warm air settling over the top of a colder, denser air mass, resulting in an atmospheric duct that acts as a refracting lens. •
There's a bit science for your day. As always, thank you for following along! •

Dawn in the mountains. This time of the day gets me excited to shoot photos!
The newest painting, finished seconds ago. "Mount Huntington," acrylic on canvas, 24 by 30 inches. In the shadow of Denali's Isis Face, I do believe this mountain is among the most beautiful of the world. I love flying past it. I'd still like to climb it someday. More from Denali National Park's unofficial artist-in-residence. #alaskarange #mountainartist #pilotartist #climbingartist #denalinationalpark
Appreciation post here.
A little over a year ago I created this Instagram account with the goal of sharing my adventures and beauty of Alaska. Today I hit 10k followers on my account I just would like to say thank you for all your kind comments and great support on my photography!
Keepin it in perspective 🤙🏻
Jagged peaks in the Alaska range. The peaks in Central Alaska are endless!
