Ski Trail, by Ronnie Glover

The Tony Knowles Coastal Trail runs about 10 miles from downtown Anchorage to Kincaid park offering wildlife encounters, and activities of running, walking, biking and cross country skiing. On the section, the groomed cross country ski trail winds through the woods. I liked the “S” shaped composition, the contrast of the dark trees versus the white snow, and the sense of exploration or “what lies ahead?”

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.
