Granite Creek Campground is gorgeous. We stop there every year after going dip-netting in Kenai. Guess what we do…we fish! Capturing all of my boys and my husband in one images really means a lot to me. This is an image that I will treasure for my entire life.
There is just something about this image that really captures summertime to me. I also love that you really can’t see my daughters face, that adds to the mystery of it all. I literally held my lens over a sprinkler to get the drops on the front of the lens, and then I got as close to the sprinkler as I could stand without getting completely hosed. Then I just waited. She ran back and forth, and I just clicked over and over again. I probably made about 30 images to get this one. There are others that I love as well….but I’ll post those later.
I love dandelions. They surround our property, and I refuse to mow them all down. I remember when I was younger picking them for hours and blowing them. Wildflowers make me so happy. I’ve recently decided that especially in Alaska you need to embrace the wild and free.
