Aircraft Portrait and Background Scenery –

Alaska is huge; it’s the largest state in the U.S., twice the size of the second largest state of Texas. However, it’s also one of the least populated states, mostly filled with small communities and devoid of high rise buildings. This makes it the perfect photography destination for anyone looking to capture scenes of untouched forests, enormous glaciers and of course the infamous Northern Lights.

Such a huge landmass is virtually impossible to cover in a single trip. The scenery that you will experience is the best in the Northwest, some say the world. For example the mountains in the top of this image are across the upper Cook Inlet and only 75 miles from Anchorage, Alaska’s largest city.

Time is short, distances here are very large.
