Alaska, the last frontier
I recently had the opportunity to make a family trip to a destination that had long craved to know, the 49th state of the United States. What I found exceeded my expectations. Alaska is a land blessed with gorgeous natural landscapes formed by a magical combination of sea, mountains, ancient glaciers and forests. As if this were not enough, the variety of flora and fauna that can be seen is surprising and in some cases takes your breath away.
While I did not have much time and space to shoot at ease, I could bring some pictures of the iconic wildlife that inhabits these lands, such as the bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus), the humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) and black bear (Ursus americanus). Undoubtedly Alaska is truly the last frontier. Weather conditions, the vastness of its surface and its difficult access make this land still be highly conserved, something no doubt also due to the high ecological awareness of its inhabitants, who since childhood understand the importance of preserving natural resources.
I’m sure I will return to this destination in exploratory and photographic plan, looking for grizzly bears, killer whales, caribou and those breathtaking landscapes that remind us how wonderful and vibrant is our planet Earth.
