Summer Into Autumn Photography

Due to unforeseen circumstances this spring in my household, my workload increased and my summer has been busy, busy. Autumn is always busy, with harvesting moose and foraging for berries. I thought I’d give you all a break from the macro shots and share a little hodgepodge. Enjoy!

One of the wild bunnies on the property collecting fresh hay for his burrow.
On a hot day, nothing feels as nice as the cool air beneath a canopy of alders.
Looking into the alders, it’s like a whole new world, very grounding and magical.
Sometimes the sky looks like a painting and I stare in awe.
Salmon from subsistence fishing.
Beautiful colors.
Smoking the salmon.
Another gorgeous sunset from my front porch.
The fair comes every August.
And watched this sword-swallower guy. Wow. So cool to see it in person.
This wild baby bunny, who I called Cinnamon, invited herself into my house several times.
Gorgeous day at the beach.
Chemtrails all day makes for some interesting skies.
They don’t call it fireweed for nothing.
I don’t have any food for you, bunny.
Butchering the moose.

  1. paddock to plate! love it – we do the same with camel which are feral here … i bet moose is gamey? camel is hard to distinguish from beef once cooked. great pictures, as we’ve come to expect 🙂

    • Moose is definitely not my favorite red meat, but that’s what is available here. It’s IS gamey from the willow and spruce trees they eat. I prefer caribou, elk, deer, bison… but they aren’t here in my neck of the woods. It’s better than beef though.

      • stop it 🙂 sounds like a cornucopia of epicurean delights.

        your photos capture the moment in a way that takes the viewer on a tour of your perception of things. a picture speaks a thousand words? yes, but also exposes the soul of the photographer, which is even more engaging. ‘see it like i do’ if you will. art and reality intersect. one can aspire to do likewise, and that is inspiring.


  2. Wonderful photos, Tara. One gets a real feel for Alaska. Never knew there were black rabbits in Alaska. You learn something knew everyday. Ours are brown.

    • It’s true the native Arctic Hare is tannish grey in summer and white in winter, but these rabbits are actually from some domestic bunnies that were released nearby decades ago by some folks. Now they have somewhat bred with the native bunnies… down the road a piece there are a bunch of one bunnies with black and brown spots. Here on my property I see black, dark grey, light grey, and one year white and butterscotch tan. The one baby you see here that is brown will actually turn light grey when it’s baby fur blows out. I just love the bunnies. They make me happy.
