Moose are plentiful in Alaska and often seen within the city of Anchorage. They are large wild animals and members of the deer family. The bull moose can be distinguished easily by the growth of antlers. The antlers are shed late in the year and begin regrowth each spring. I often wandered the woods within the city limits of Anchorage searching for moose and following them to photograph. Safe distance is recommended as their size and strength must be respected to avoid injury or death.

Photographer: Ronnie Glover (Gig Harbor, WA, USA) Registered
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 classes 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 enjoys sports and travel photography and the experience of different cultures. It is his wish that his images will expose others to the beauty of nature, the inspiration of physical pursuits, and other cultures and promote a greater understanding of each. Most recently, he has ventured into the exploding mobile photography realm using his iPhone to document running and sporting events. He invites everyone to enjoy his gallery and feel free to contact him with any comments.
