Alaska

Just finished a 7 day cruise North from Vancouver, BC through the "Inside Passage" of Alaska. Images from my trip are HERE

I know its not Vermont Photography, but hope you enjoy.

Will be in Vermont in October, so, hope to post some real Vermont stuff this fall!

Wow, a lot of great shots for only 7 days. Looks like you had some nice weather. I really like #48, #61, and #86. But the best are those eagle shots. :shock: Wow. How was the trip?

Hey there, FAX: Thanks. The trip EXCEEDED all expectations. The ship was great. The Food was good to great. Alaska (at least from late May - September) is truly a natural wonderland. Views every place you look. I wonder if most Alaskans take it for granted, or -- like me -- just keep turning, looking, and saying "WOW"!

Knowing it was a cruise and a family vacation, my photographic expectations were quite low. I was pleasantly surprised. Being on the cruise and/or a train 98% of the time, makes for a real challenge. My next trip to AK will be land -based with more time to find and work subjects. We knew, for example, we wouldn't see much in the way of wildlife. No grizzlies, Dall Sheep, etc. I know they are plentiful there, though -- so will expect to see them on a Land trip.

Charles - don't wait too long! It truly is a photographer's wonderland. My late father always said he wanted to go there. But he always had something more important to do. We often tend to follow in our parents footsteps and repeat history. I am trying to change that pattern in my own life and my wife and I are doing some of the things we have said we were "going" to do! Its rewarding (expensive too :-) ). Thanks for the comment.
