Flickr a Week 27b: ‘Ketchikan Creek Street’

We celebrate US Independence Day with an Alaskan serene scene—self-titled “Ketchikan Creek Street“, which Bernard Spragg captured on Sept. 6, 2012 using Sony DSLR-A580 and 18-270mm F3.5-6.3 lens. Vitals: f/11, ISO 400, 1/125 sec, 35mm. The photo wins the holiday for composition (marked by American flag in the foreground), color, contrast, crispness, and vibrancy.

Bernard explains about the location that attracts “thousands of visitors every year”: “The antique boardwalk on wooden pilings over Ketchikan Creek is home to restaurants, unique curio shops, the Dollys House Museum, and private dwellings, as well as some of the best salmon viewing areas in Ketchikan. Married Mans Trail and the Salmon Ladder are also not to be missed when exploring Creek Street!”

Living in Christchurch, New Zealand, Bernard joined Flickr in October 2012. He’s still active eight years later.
