It appears to have been over a year since I've shared anything on the TKM Journal. I'm unsure how I'll be using G+ heading forward, but I do know I want to get that blog going more regularly again, and I'll probably be linking from here when new posts are available.

I don't make many photos in windy and rainy conditions, especially in January, but I figured that the first day of a new year is a perfect day to shirk that trend. Still the dampness limited me to a single composition, and this image is a combination of three different exposures for depth of field. My brief time in the elements with my wife, daughter, and niece was still rewarded with views of a small raft of sea lions and a lone humpback whale. No one need wonder why I'm looking forward to yet another year in Juneau. Happy New Year, may God richly bless you!

I shared this new photo from the recent development in the Mendenhall Glacier cave system on 500px.com a week ago, but I had really intended to present a larger version than what can be viewed on that site. This is nowhere close to a full size file, but I feel like it has a good balance between showing adequate amounts of detail without being excessive in size.

The cave that was all but nonexistent in early June has opened up considerably, even to include this cavernous chamber at the base of the background waterfalls. The rocky floor has a sudden drop at the same time the ceiling soars upward, and while the depth (below ice) of this location makes it extremely dark, the dynamic landscape is overwhelming. I haven't had the fortune to make a return trip yet, but I'm hoping to get out there in the midday when more light is penetrating the ice.

Thanks for taking the time to view this photo and leaving your thoughts in the comments.

And just when you thought two consecutive photos of cascading water in Southeast Alaska might be enough, I posted a third. This time a small stream spills down the slopes  that have recently been uncovered by the recession of the Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau, Alaska.

This is the second of two larger photos of creeks that I've posted on #500px in the last couple days. Enjoy!

I've decided I'm going to give larger files a try over on #500px because there have been more than a couple times lately where the compression just wasn't working for me at the size I'm used to sharing. The fist post is from a simple but beautiful moment this past summer when I was photographing approaching rain showers from just a little north of Eagle Beach.

If you've ever paddled a Kayak over the Benjamin Island, this is right near the boat launch, and it's definitely a place I will seek out again under the right conditions.

I considered taking the year off from pulling together a collection of favorite photographs from the past 12 months, but at the last second, I changed my mind. I hope 2014 has left you with many wonderful memories, as it has for me, and I hope that you see an abundance of blessing in 2015!

I had thought about sharing this photo in a color version for quite a while (probably did share it somewhere), but I kept on putting it off. The other day, I transitioned it to monochrome and really liked the results...

I made this photo well over a year ago, and it inspired an essay that I think I've been working on for well over six months. Well, I finally posted the essay on the TKM Journal today. If you have time and the desire to read it, I hope you find some value there.

Moonrise Over Mountains - Mt Juneau Ridge

No day yielded more landscape photographs this summer than the one where this image was made. Twilight hues in the sky also enhanced the natural colors of the rocks and grasses on the Mt Juneau Ridge. The moon hanging low in the sky added a focal point in an otherwise vacant part of the composition...

A surprisingly low-reaching blanket of snow on Mt McGinnis, which I noticed on my ride home from work today, signals that I may not make any more trips to mountain summits before next summer, so I'm please to have this and a handful of other hikes to look back on.
