Tundra and taiga stock photography

 

All of the tundra and taiga pictures are available for purchase as stock photography, or as fine art prints to display in your home or office. The few below have been popular, but there are many more that can be found in the gallery or by doing a tundra photo search.

The tundra and taiga covering much of Alaska is a delicate yet thriving ecosystem. Many plants have evolved artfully to deal with its harsh conditions. Underlying permafrost (frozen ground) restricts the topsoil depth and limits tree growth as a result. In spite of the long harsh winter covered by snow, the summer melt is quick and plant life explodes in rapid growth under constant daylight. Many of Alaska’s well know mammals live in these habitats.
