After puttering along all day through Culross Passage on a cloudy day in Prince William Sound we made a trip ashore to stretch our legs in the spongy Alaska Wilderness.
A beautiful sunset along the Cliffs of La Jolla.
Cliffs of Seldovia
I nice sunset lights up the cliffs along the shore in the remote fishing village of Seldovia, Alaska.
Below the Surf
Snorkelling in Hawaii can vary greatly from day to day. This is below the Two Step area.
Submerged Rock Bridge
This is the top of a natural bridge with coral beginning to grow on it. It struck me how flat and clean the rock surface seemed to be.
Sunbeams and Coral
An open area of long bands of coral with sand in between
A large wall of coral drops down to a sandy trough.
Rope Lava stopped by the ocean at some point, slowly chips away
Two Step Sunset
The last rays of the sun illuminate the Vog pouring down from the mountain.
The Door Through the Sky
A thin black band of cloud hovers high above a solitary monolith that, from a distance, looked like a hole in the sky at the edge of the world.
Kenai Fjords National Park
Kenai Fjords is a timeless park of wilderness at the end of the Kenai Peninsula. Countless waterfalls and hundreds of glaciers pour from the Harding Icefields into the many fjords.
A remarkable cut in the cliff is home to hundreds of nesting and flying sea birds in Kenai Fjords National Park.
Chiswell Islands Archipelago
The Chiswell Islands are my favorite rocky islands in Alaska. Thousands of birds nest on the rocks, which were originally mountain peaks during the last ice age when sea level was hundreds of feet lower.

Ocean Pyramid (color)
The Chiswells are a maze of towers that offer exceptional protection from predators for nesting birds.
Avian Shroud (detail)
This dome of rock in the Chiswell Archipelago was engulfed in an eternal cloak made up of thousands of sea birds. you can see some of them on both sides of the rock where the contrast with the sky helps them stand out.
Ship of Stone
A ship made of stone seems to wait for the tide to come back in on a foggy day in Passage Canal.
