Color Inspiration - Alaskan Range
by Jennifer Brooks
A friend of mine just bought a home in Alaska. Before purchasing the home, worked 3 months out of the year for several years at a mining site and commuted back and forth to his home and family in Colorado. Having the opportunity to watch his travels via social media, I got to witness the turning of the seasons, the long summer nights where the sun barely sets, and the brilliantly verdant colors of the season's foliage. On his most recent journey back to Colorado, he snapped this amazing photo of fog in the valley on the back side of Mount Sanford and Mount Blackburn.
As a girl who grew up in the Colorado Rockies and now lives in the Pacific Northwest, I have a keen appreciation for mountains and the ways that light changes in their presence. In this nearly grey-scale image, I found wondrous hues of blues and yellows. Where the light hits the clouds in the valley, and how the furthest mountains are brighter than the nearest. These layers makes me especially happy. Even the subtle hue of sea green as the blue of the sky filters through the edges of the clouds is exciting

The fog sinks into the valley to drink deeply of the earth and the peaks pierce the clouds above. I tried to capture all the elements and angles of these majestic yet simple hues in this abstract mountain range necklace setting. Montana agate, amazonite, hematite, and lapis lazuli come together nicely as the bright and
dark sides of this color palette.
Get out there and appreciate the beauty that surrounds you.
