I recently came back from a 10-day cruise-land tour in Alaska. My is it beautiful up there! Cold too! I never thought I would be glad to be back in warm Kansas! :) It made for some beautiful photography. I took so many photos but will only include my favorites from the trip along with some narratives about our location.
First, let me say that God was so good to give us good weather during most of the trip; unusually good weather. I didn't know this but it is usually cloudy and rain most of the time in Alaska. I took this photo from my seat on this train. We took a train ride from Fairbanks down to Anchorage where we would board our ship in Seward. This is my favorite photo from the trip. The pretty pink flowers are called fireweed. Alaska was so beautiful with these wildflowers.

Kim likes to come over my house and help me out when I need it. I wanted to do a practice session for a little girl that would be doing a wildflower session on our property. Since it had been so hot, I wanted to make sure I had everything ready for the session due to the extreme heat. I so like how these two practice shots turned out of Kim. Enjoy! :}
Pray! Pray! Pray! That was what I thought of when I saw this praying mantis on my front porch a few days ago. He watched me as I took his picture. Isn't he cute? God has a good sense of humor and the praying mantis is just one example of His many funny creatures! :p
