Alaska Wildflower photos
The Alaska wildflower photos here are by no means comprehensive, but they are samples from my photography ventures throughout the state. While Alaska is well known for its long and dark winter, the summer, although short, is an infusion of light. It is under these long summer days that a spectacular diversity of wildflowers bloom along the roadways, forest floor, tundra wetlands, and mountain meadows. All of the Alaska wildflower photos on this site can be licensed as stock photography or purchased as fine art prints for your home or office.
Over the years, plants have adapted to endure great winds and cool temperatures in high mountain meadows, often displaying flowers that bloom close to the ground or have special insulating qualities to protect them from the chill.
