Frosty Fall Tundra

Frost covers the tundra in Skolai Pass, Wrangell St. Elias National Park, Alaska.

Hey Folks,

Here’s another photo from our backpacking trip to Skolai Pass early in September. We had a few nice cold mornings, and before the sun popped up I made a few images of the frosty tundra. Let’s see how many plants readers can identify in this image?

Cheers

Carl

    Hey Mark,
    Actually, I thought the bears might be getting to the readers, so I threw in a few other shots. I should mention – this photo was taken with a Canon 40D and 60mm macro lens .. the property of one Mr Doug Roane, who totally saved my A** when my Nikon D2x busted. This was the first morning when I was nikon-less. All I can say is ‘Thanks Doug!’

    I’ll try to post a few more bears, eh?

    Cheers

    Carl

    My pleasure, Carl, and welcome to the macro world! This is awesome! Glad somebody got some macros of the frost! 😉 But I know you … you would’ve gladly traded me for the 16-35mm, wouldn’t you? lol
