Alpha Collective's Must-See Southern Alaska Photo Ops

When the Alpha Imaging Collective journeyed to Alaska in September of 2017, the group of photographers, filmmakers and writers were only able to scratch the surface of the state which is larger than California, Montana and Texas combined. In their whirlwind adventure, they managed to see and photograph a part of the rich visual tapestry of the states's landscapes, wildlife and natural phenomenon. While traveling in southern Alaska--in the area of the Kenai Peninsula and Chugach Mountains--here are some of the top photo opps they discovered.
