I refer to this series as The Color of White, which is primarily inspired by my experience of Alaska's immersive and beautiful white-on-white winter landscape. Created by using three separate images captured over time, each artwork in this series usually an hour or so to shoot and then blended over one another to create a colorful multiple exposure image. Mountain landscapes inspire me. Growing up in West Texas's flat planes offered the distant summits of New Mexico, Colorado, California, and now Alaska a certain allure. When I see a mountain, my eyes move skyward, seeking the peak. ~ Tom
⋙ Field Notes
The Summit Lake image sequence was all created between Lower Summit Lake, Moose Pass, and Cooper Landing. This high traffic stretch of the Seward Highway, countless photographic possibilities. This area is a winter recreation area where Alaskans come to snowshoe, cross-country ski, and ride their snow machines. I love the textures of this image; everything from the trees and the cross-country ski trails in the foreground to the almost plastic quality of the mountain peak in the background.
