More From Kenai Fjords National Park
I've spent more time this week editing photos from last summer. I was happy to find some gems I had forgotten about. All of these images were taken inside of Kenai Fjords National Park. I feel incredibly thankful to have such a world class scenic wonder so close to where I live and even more grateful that I've been able to visit so many times. I can't wait for next summer!

When photographing ice it's really important to keep a good eye on your histogram. Your camera's meter will try and turn the white ice to gray. You may need to add exposure, usually a stop and a half or so.
