  1. Some incredible pictures here, especially love the one of the humpback jumping out the water. Alaska is very high on my list, every post I see has amazing pictures and this one was no different 😀

  2. Your photos of the northern lights, the galaxy, the water planes, and thw humpback whale were all so awesome. Alaska may be a far-fetched destination for me due to visa regulations im the US, but who knows. To see the northern lights is one on my bucket lists and I’m still not giving up all hopes to visit Alaska in the future.

    1. Thanks very much! Alaska is a truly intriguing destination but there are also other places to see the northern lights such as Scandinavia if you cannot travel to the US, Cheers!

  3. I’ve been waiting to visit Alaska ever since dad used to sing ‘North to Alaska’ to us when we were kids. Still haven’t made it there yet. This post reminds me of why I want to go there. It’s beautiful, and I have to meet a bear. 😉 Love your pics!
