Photographer's Note

I go back to Alaska quite often. These days, aside from Homer, my once home, I travel to Valdez to attend the annual Last Frontier Playwrights Conference.

Valdez is a small city of about 4000 people, marked in history by a tremendously powerful earthquake (the famous Good Friday Quake of 1964 that lasted 5 minutes and registered 9.2 on the richter scale) and the even more infamous Exxon oil spill of 1989, that crippled the Prince William Sound for years.

This glacial earth-spot is now once again home to thriving wildlife and a fine bunch of people who make it a fantastic spot for playwrights like me to convene once every year.

This is the very top of one of the tall, flag-bearing posts that run alongside the marina. I thought it was a nice image plastered against the deep blue of the afternoon sky (summer in Alaska, of course, is lit nearly 24 hours a day).

I did no cropping. I only adjusted light levels in PS.
