These images were taken in February 2014 in Arctic Valley that is located 10 miles north-east of Anchorage, Alaska. Rendezvous Peak is located at the head of the valley and has an elevation of 4,000 feet. Arctic Valley Ski Area is a small area that locals use. Many Anchorage kids learn to ski here before heading to Alyeska Resort located in Girdwood. The images of the Anchorage bowl were taken on a very hazy and low-light day. The large green buildings are located on Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson.
I did not have a tripod with me so I had to brace myself against a vehicle to keep the camera stable. Even though I took efforts to keep my camera steady some of the images were unusable due to lack of sharpness. The exposures were just to long for me to keep the camera stable. I do not post images unless are in focus and shape.
