15 photos

These 2013 images were taken during the winter in Russian Jack Springs Park in Alaska, Alaska. The night scenes show how the trails are well-lit with several different types of lighting. The tungsten lights (greenish color) provides the best visibility. The spring feed creek does not freeze over even during the coldest temperatures. The stream produces fog in cold temperatures. The park has many tree that support fungi growth. Mushrooms grow all over the place. The scene with the mountains was taken from the Russian Jack baseball fields.

I used my Nikon 55mm f/2.8 manual focus micro lens to take these close up images. The lens is very sharp, as detailed as modern lenses I believe. Landscape scenes were taken with my Nikon 16-35mm f/4 zoom. The night scenes were taken around 9:00 pm and had exposures of 1.3 to 10 seconds with an aperture of f/8. I used my surveyor tripod with a wireless remote to take these photos with my Nikon D7000.
