More from Dutch Harbor, Alaska

Dutch Harbor, Alaska, USA

I’m back in Dutch Harbor after being out at sea for the past month and a half. I have been observing on long-line commercial fishing vessels fishing for Pacific Cod in the Bering sea. It was a long time out and I must say it’s nice to be back on land. I wanted to share some more images from this beautiful part of the world where bald eagles and rainbows can be found on any ordinary day. I had some great shooting days before I left to sea last month. Now the weather in Dutch is getting cold and windy and its hard to stay outside for very long.

Below is an endangered Short-Tailed Albatross, which are very rare to see. I have been told there are less than 3000 individuals in the world. I was fortunate enough to see a few of these birds while out at sea.

In other news… I had an article published recently about my trip to Mindanao last June. I think they did a great job with the layout. I am continuing to work on my writing skills which I believe is important to compliment images in story telling. I am still in Alaska and my way to Daytona for the Harley Davidson Biketoberfest Rally. I’ll be back in Alaska for a short while longer after the rally before returning to Cebu. More photos to come.

    Hi Jake! your photos are outstanding! well done!:)

  • You have to be kidding me with the eagle shots. What are the specs on those shots?

    Have fun in Daytona – if you manage to visit Zeno’s Boardwalk Candy Shop (right in the middle of everything) and you meet Johnny the owner, tell him Jamie Sanford sent you. He is married to one of my BFFs.
