Cross country ski trails mark the path of a skier across the snow covered landscape. Winters can be long and dark in Alaska. For some, the lack of daylight can cause depression. One of the bright spots of winter is being able to enjoy the snow. The physical activity and playful fun of skiing and other activities can help prevent or diminish the seasonal depression.

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.
