These images were taken during the ceremonial start of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race in March 2016 in Anchorage, Alaska. People were having fun. The ceremonial start was shorted from eleven miles to three miles due to the lack of snow and warm weather. Human use of fossil fuels is causing a greenhouse effect that is trapping heat that warms the earth’s surface. Global warming is having dire consequences in the Arctic.

I try to photograph Alaskans wearing furs since it is the winter fashion in Alaska. These images are what typical Alaskans look like. One of my goals as a photographer is to show the world what Alaska residents look like. We are a hardy bunch that enjoys hunting, fishing, hiking, skiing, boating and biking. Alaska has spectacular scenery.

I took these images with my Nikon 70-200mm f/4 zoom lens and Nikon D810 attached to a monopod. I will remove any photo upon request by contacting me at bartz@englishoephotography.com
