Award Winner | Photo of the Day | December 25, 2011
This photo was taken near 11 pm in July. It may have saved my life and the very least my Jeep . The 1/125ths or so of a second it took to push the shutter button was about equal to the amout of time by which I missed hitting a moose a few moments later. There is much traffic once you get away from the city of Anchorage, but there are a lot of scenic vistas.
Technical Info: 35mm Nikon N2000 with Fuji Velvia slide film

Title of the photograph: Rush Hour in Rural Alaska
Photo of the Day Award Category: Landscape Photography
Photograph Location: Rural Alaska | United States
Photographer: Ronnie Glover (Gig Harbor, WA, USA)
Photography took a backseat while Ronnie obtained his college degree. After graduation, he purchased his first camera but was unable to produce the images that he saw in his mind. He then took a few continuing education class to learn the technical aspects of the camera and realized there was so much more to learn about photography. So Ronnie enrolled in the professional program at Southeastern Center for the Arts in Atlanta. The school was operated by Jeanne & Neil Chaput de Saintonge, who currently operate Rocky Mountain School of Photography. He spent 14 years living in Alaska and this gave him unbelievable opportunities to experience nature and capture many images. Ronnie also enjoy travel photography and the experience of different cultures. It is his wish that his images will expose others to the beauty of nature and other cultures. He invites everyone to enjoy his gallery and feel free to contact him with any comments.
