7 on 7 is a photographic blog circle of friends posting 7 photos on the 7th of the month. Grab a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and walk through our circle with us. It will do your heart and soul some good.
Life is a little insane here at the moment as we are in the midst of a move and prepping the house for sale. This won’t happen until August, but there is a lot to do. I sit amidst boxes ready for movers or storage, but here in the whirlwind of this chaos, I get to revisit a trip we took with some family in June to Alaska. We went for a week of fishing and scenery. It was a bit rainy and socked in for most of the week, but you know I’m a sucker for that ethereal soft light. There was a lot of wildlife to say hello to as well. So while I’m not the greatest fisherwoman out there, I’m always in for some pretty landscape.
We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary this past June. My love asked me what I wanted, and like any girl would say, I told him I wanted a 14mm wide angle lens. It was a lot of fun shooting with this out on the water. I cannot wait to take it out for some astrophotography.
We spent a couple days in Juneau on the way back home and did a float plane tour over the Juneau icefields. Seeing the glaciers from above was just phenomenal. They are such a sight to behold.
I am intrigued by the movement of glaciers. These rivers of ice are always moving even though they move at “a glacial pace”. Obviously, some move faster that others, but I thought I’d share a timelapse of glacier movement so you could see how they move. Just fascinating. I hope a little bit of Alaska brought some chill to your July day.
Please continue around our circle with the ever lovely work of my friend Cristy Cross. She has some fun tips for photographing your littles!
See you all in August! Stay cool.

Oh Kris! That Mama Otter just about melted my heart!!! I grew up in California and we often visited the Monterey Bay. Oh how I love those smart little critters!!! I just adore following your travel adventures! Thank you for sharing – and I’m glad I am not the only one who asks for camera equipment for every available gift giving holiday!!! 😉
Never miss an opportunity to score some gear, am I right? 😀 The otter was definitely one of my favorites. So much character.
I love the way you see soft light. Amazing images and thank you for introducing me to a more intimate look at Alaska! I’ve never been there but feel as I have now.
Quite a compliment! Thank you!
These are so beautiful and dreamy. Your skies are gorgeous.
Thank you! It was nice to get one day where they opened up a bit.
What an amazing trip to take. Alaska is on my bucket list. I love the dreamy light and the images you captured with your new lens. Good luck on the move. xoxox
Thank you my friend! xoxo
