Kayak Island

Kayak Island is a remote island on the south west coast if Alaska. I spent a month there filming in almost every type of weather conditions and one morning I woke up to a fresh dusting of snow across the whole island. The photo was taken early in the morning after sunrise with the snow storm clouds seen in the background as the sun lit up the the pinnacle rock that sits at the southernmost tip of this beautiful island. The dusting of snow helped bring out the rugged landscape of this remote and hostile environment. While the rock features might seem like the focus of the photo, hidden on the rocks at the edge of the ocean is a colony of Stellas Sea Lions. These animals can weigh over a ton yet their size is totally masked by the scale of this island.
