Kathleen and the Waves

Kathleen Lake lies at the eastern edge of Kluane Park, south of the village of Haines Junction. It is not a particularly large body of water but whitecaps are a common sight on it. On windy days this is likely the most tempestuous place around, as katabatic winds descending from the ice fields to the west are funneled by the lay of the land onto the lake. On this day, it was blowing hard enough to make walking difficult.
I shot this last mid-September near the start of a second trip I took with my visiting friends, this time just heading for a couple of days’ stay at Haines, Alaska, one of my favourite area destinations. Yes, it is January as I post it and I am anxious to move on to newer stuff, but I haven't quite finished working through all my photos from that prolific month of September.
