Misty Fjords seaplane photo

One of the great tourist activities in Alaska is going on a scenic fight. On the Alaska Panhandle (the bit that runs South east alongside the Canadian border) is the Misty Fjords National Monument, an area of, yes, you’ve guessed it Fjords. We flew from Ketchikan, the closest town, on a DeHavilland Otter seaplane. This one flew over the top and through the Fjords before landing on a lake and then back. The weather in Ketchikan was gloomy with drizzle and low cloud, so we were sceptical when the tour company told us that once you get away from the coast it would be clear. But they were right, well half right, there was still a bit of low cloud but it didn’t detract from clearly seeing some sensational scenery! 1/100 @ f8 75mm ISO 100
