Looking down on the coast of Alaska
This abstract photograph was taken from a small single-engine airplane and featured aerial photography of the earth, land, and sea. The marble texture of the earth planet aerial features the abstract nature of the water channel in the brown land surface exposed at low tide. The coast of Anchorage, Alaska, has an average tidal range is about 26 ft (8 m). Therefore each day, a massive amount of coastline is exposed, and as the seawater recedes, these beautiful patterns emerge. To capture this visual spectacle, you need to photograph from an elevation of about 2-3,000 feet (1,000 m).
