Before moving to Alaska, the coldest temperature I had experienced was 7 degrees F. Planning to experience the great outdoors but not wanting to become front page news, I decided to take a winter survival course. The course involved 3-4 overnight trips in January-March , spending the night in self built shelters from available materials (aka, snow). This image was made on one of those trips during a break from a group igloo building session. From our location for the night, this image looks down on the peaks and fog below.

Photographer: Ronnie Glover (Gig Harbor, WA, USA) Registered Photographer
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.
