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.
This is my middle son. I love him to death. After a long day, and I mean long day at the fair with his grandparents, he asked me to go on the Ferris wheel with him. It sounded fun, so we got in line. It was probably an hour of time we waited in line for our turn. We climbed aboard and took our seats. It was then that I remembered! I am afraid of heights! I managed to get through it, but I’m not sure I’ll be going again any time soon.
Denali is a stunningly beautiful place. We saw rabbits, and more rabbits along the way. On the way out my husband asked me if I wanted to pull over to get a shot. It started raining, and I for a moment, thought about not getting out of the car. I am so glad I did…the only way to get amazing photos is to put the camera up and take it!
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.
