Totem Pole ready to be carved, Alaska
Ketchikan Rain Forest, Alaska
Alaska is one of the worlds major rain forests with some
of the tallest canopies on the planet.
We need to preserve these rain forests to preserve
water on the planet.
The trees are not only important in the cycling of water on the
planet but they are home to the beautiful bald eagle population.
The natives would cut down a tall tree and carve their ancestral
totem. It is a sacred coat of arms per-se, for their family.
The Alaskan Fireweed flower is seen all throughout
Ketchikan. It is said that when the blooms reach the top of
the flower, that the snow is only four weeks away.
When we were there in mid August, most of the fireweed
was in full bloom indicating an early Winter.

Specialties: Nature Photography, Living Art, Digital Art and Design, Healing Arts, Feng Shui. Margot Sherry Bogdanow-Carrera’s lifelong dedication to nature photography, her preferred art form for portraying this Earth, the planet unto which we are born and bound to preserve, is evident throughout her website: www.CarreraFineArt.com. Nature, in return, provides us with everything necessary for the spiritual journey we take while we remain on Earth. Too many of us, preoccupied with our daily struggle to survive, have lost sight of that promise, forgetting that if we had cared for Earth, there would be no struggle. Margot Carrera’s avowed insightful and artistic intent is to remind humankind of their connection to and with Nature, to remember that every one of us are – or should be – devoted stewards of this Earth. One can readily observe her special bond with every object she photographs and how this inspires each memorable image. “When you look at my website,” says Carrera, “you will discover at least one singular image that speaks directly to you and helps you to recall your own beautiful connection to Earth."
