Overview

Above Alaska and the Inside Passage offers a breathtaking collection of 157 high quality aerial photographs capturing the splendour and natural beauty of this remote state. This beautiful ebook takes viewers on a virtual journey by helicopter from the Port of Seattle, past Victoria on Vancouver Island to the less inhabited Alaskan wilderness of the Inside Passage and beyond.
These breathtaking aerial views look down at life on the colourful Alaskan cruise ships which ply these waters along with some of their isolated destinations. From the Ketchikan waterfront to the sprawling metropolis of Anchorage, renowned Canadian photographer Russ Heinl captures each aerial image to perfection. His professional eye, combined with the latest high-tech equipment, capture in minute detail the breathtaking beauty of Alaska including its magnificent wildlife, spectacular glaciers and modern cities in this collection of aerial photos.
Using the latest gyro-stabilized Nikon camera systems, the photographs capture the smallest detail from the barnacled tail fins of humpback whales to the textured surface of surreal blue ice glaciers. See the beauty of Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, the emerald waters of Misty Fjord and dog sleds racing on Norris Glacier. Stunning images capture the snow-capped peaks of the Chugach Mountains and the vast Columbia Glacier which ends in Prince William Sound. Unique aerial views of the trans-Alaska pipeline bringing oil to the port of Valdez contrast sharply with nature’s fiery sunsets over the Alaskan waters.
For armchair travellers, would-be Alaska visitors, nature lovers and those who simply want to recapture their visit to this amazing state, Above Alaska and the Inside Passage charts an awe-inspiring voyage of discovery through aerial photography. This beautiful ebook will thrill every reader with its stunning aerial pictures, clarity and attention to detail with an informative introduction to enhance each chapter. Enjoy these first-class aerial images time and time again or make a gift of this beautiful ebook of Alaska and the Inside Passage to someone special.
