2013 09-27 A Change of Seasons by Watertown, South Dakota, photographer Scott Shephard

Yesterday’s post is a broader view of what you would see from the Safari Endeavor, the Un-Cruise ship we lived on for our week in Alaska. Today’s post shows what you might see if you were lucky enough to move into the apparently dense forest of spruce trees. This photo was not taken on this neat little island but it wasn’t taken far from this spot.

Fall in moving in to our part of the world but, as you can see, it arrives even earlier in Alaska, given that this photo was taken in late August. If I paid more attention to our guides and less to my photography, I could tell you the name of this plant, which is apparently one to be avoided because of its serrated leaves. But it’s looking pretty photogenic here.
