The end of my journey on the Alaskan Marine Highway Ferry was in Homer to the south west of Anchorage. It had been 6 days of sailing along the coast of Alaska and Canada and I had seen some truly amazing sights. Alaska is so rugged and remote that only a fraction of the country is accessible by road. The majority of travel to the rest of the regions is done either by boat or sea-plane.
What really amazed me is how large the mountains are so close to the ocean. I kept thinking to myself, this was like a giant version of Fiordland in New Zealand. Just as we were entering the harbour at Homer, nature clearly wasn't done putting on a show and gave me one hell of a send off.
I decided black and white was the best way to portray the gravity of the area and let the geometry of the numerous layers of mountains be the prime focus. Just when you think it couldn't get any better, the large gull flying off towards the mountains was the icing on the cake.
