Once in a while you find a place on earth that becomes your very own. A place undefined. Waiting for you to bring your color, your self. A place untouched, unspoiled, undeveloped. Raw, honest, and haunting. No one, nothing is telling you how to feel or who to be. Let the mountains have you for a day… -- Sundance
Alaska Photography Journey
I spent 14 wonderful days in Alaska. Part of the trip was with a photo tour with Lisa Langell and the rest was on my own. It was a fabulous trip and I saw so much wildlife including Sea Otters, Whales, Coastal Brown Bears, and so many spectacular views in the Kenai Peninsula, Lake Clark, Denali National Park, Matanuska Glacier and so much more.
Gulls, Sea Otters Puffins and More at Kachemak Bay Alaska - Jouney by Koral Martin
I have created a video of my trek to Gull Island out about 3 miles south of the Homer Spit, in Kachemak Bay, and all the wonderful wildlife we saw especially the sea otters! I could have watched the otters all day long. Did you know that 90% of the worlds Sea Otters live in coastal Alaska and that they eat 25% of their body weight in food every day. Their have the thickest fur of any animal - wow! And to keep warm, they spend lots of time grooming themselves. I wonder if that is why they spin round and round so much too LOL. Enjoy!!

A Day in the Life of a Alaskan Coastal Brown Bear, Lake Clark National Park Bear Video Photography
I had a fabulous 2 days of photographing the Coastal Brown Bears along the Chinitna Bay at Lake Clark National Park. This was something I had dreamed of doing for years and I was so excited to be able to do this while in Alaska on my photo tour. My adventure with these coastal brown bears started with the flight from the town of Nikiski, in the Kenai Peninsula over to the Chinitna Bay. Our lodging and guides were provided by Bear Mountain Lodge. I was immediately impressed. The flight across was fabulous and we could see all sorts of islands and volcanoes and glaciers. We actually landed on the beach and had a time at such where the tide was out to be able to do so. After a quick lunch we headed out to photograph the bears This was one of many trips out scheduled around the tides to photograph the wonderful coastal bears. We had a guide with us that lived in the area and knew all about the bears and he was ready to protect us if need be, and gave his strict guidelines for our safety.
Sunrise & Sunset Silhouettes at Reelfoot Lake, Join Koral on her Kayak as she photographs them.
Journey with Koral Martin on Reelfoot Lake as she captures sunrise and sunset silhouettes from her Kayak. She was able to also capture Osprey, Herons, Egrets and more as she photographed the beautiful area. Reelfoot lake is located in Northwestern Tennessee and was formed during the 1811 1812 New Madrid Earthquakes. The lake averages only 4 or 5 feet deep and is know for its Bald Cypress Trees and abundance of waterbirds and birds of prey. Koral enjoyed captured the birds in their habitat close up by utilizing her kayak. During the sunrise and sunset they made wonderful silhouettes as they nested and bedded in the cypress trees. Images of her photography at Reelfoot Lake can be purchased on www.koralmartin.com.

I have always enjoyed getting to see Bison and it has been on my bucket list for a long time to see and capture them in the snow with snow on their faces and backs. This winter I got the opportunity to see them in the Jackson Hole, Grand Teton and Yellowstone area. It was a wonderful experience!!
