Bluewater Anchored in Taroka Arm Along the Outer Coast with Tilt Shift Effect – Photo by Michael Sharp
Here is a sneak peak of the summer gallery: Bluewater anchored in Taroka Arm, a fjord on the Outer Coast. Past Granite Cape the Outer Coast is seldom visited. The tilt-shift effect gives a sense of scale, perhaps with a greater sense of scale you might better understand how big Alaska is and just how small we feel while exploring here.
We arrived in Taroka Arm quite by accident. Upon leaving Taz Basin the seas were more exuberant than comfortable. At first we assumed that it was a result of the ground swell coming over the continental shelf – as the water get shallower, the swell gets taller – so we made for deeper water expecting that the sea state would moderate. It didn’t. By the time we entered deep water, it was too late to turn back. We had come too far to work back against the seas, and rather than suffer and press on farther we tucked into Taroka Arm. We anchored at the head of the fjord behind a gravel spit and once again found ourselves blessed. Neptune sent us someplace we didn’t know we wanted to go. Funny how that works out.
