07/12/2004: "A few from Sandy Beach / fireweed out by the wetlands..."
As I was saying yesterday, I went out and took almost 400 photos yesterday, primarily of the ruins at the Treadwell Mine area. (I know I said over 300 but after counting them up they were closer to 400).
I'm working on putting together a gallery of those, which are very cool, just thought I'd include a few of the photos I took yesterday not related to the Treadwell series.
Sandy Beach on Douglas Island, created from sand left over after the gold mining process.
Took this shot looking over part of Sandy Beach, it's not an impressive photo, just wanted to show that we have normal summers here in Alaska.
Knot weed from my hike in Treadwell. This looks much better full-sized. I'm going to make wallpaper from some of these in the next couple of days.
I saw this cool looking truck full of bouys and crab pots on my walk home from my Treadwell hike.
A typical landscape seen from the glacier hwy. on my way back from work at the University.
There are fields and fields of fireweed this time of year. I was out shooting photos in them when I realized I was surrounded by bumblebees...I was able to get a few close-up shots.
As I was saying, all of these are much more impressive full-screen...just didn't want to overload dial-up connections.
More to come...
