USA, Alaska, Haines, Winter sunrise clouds over the frozen Chilkat River
During my recent photography tour to Haines, Alaska, this was the only morning worth photographing landscape images, but the shooting conditions were extreme. I had to lay on my stomach to get low enough to the ground to shoot this composition and the wind chill was at least -10°F. I was also instructing my clients at the same time that I was setting up my camera. For a few seconds, the low angle sunrise light briefly illuminated the foreground wind-blown snow patterns that I chose to frame the mountains. I managed a couple of exposures before the light went back behind the clouds. I continued my instruction until we all agreed that we could no longer feel our fingers or toes. Brrrr!
