When talking to others about my photography adventures, the subject often gravitates to me being asked if it really does get THAT COLD in Alaska. Here’s a few images I made in the Chilkat River Valley during my last visit to Haines, Alaska, to photograph the bald eagles there … you tell me!

Bald Eagles gather in trees along the Chilkat River

A Bald Eagle feather, encased in frost, gently blows in the breeze
I think you’d agree that it can get quite cold there … even in the “temperate” Inside Passage!
