On our recent trip to Alaska, on a day I had to myself, I had fun messing around, taking self-portraits. With a backdrop like that, how could I not? This is far from perfect as I didn't have my tripod with me, but I love it anyway. Alaska has such monumental beauty that it is impossible not to feel humbled before it, and I think that is what I like most about this photo - it is of me, looking in awe at the landscape around me. I did that every second that I was awake in Seward.
