    I finally got around to sift through the numerous photos I took on my trip to Alaska. A friend (AsianRick) and I flew to Anchorage from Miami about 2 weeks ago. Then we drove down to Seward, stayed for about 2 days, and then drove up to Denali.

    While in Seward, we stopped by EXIT GLACIER (The only Glacier accessible by land in that area). The next day, we took an 8 hr wildlife viewing cruise. The boat left Seward Harbor and went to Aialik Bay to see the Aialik Glacier. We saw some Humpback whales, some Orcas, and other various marine life.

    Then when we got to Denali, We did an 8 hr bus trip through the Denali National Park and Preserve. There we saw some Moose, Caribou, Sheep, and other wildlife.

    The trip was short, but we did a lot for the time we were there. Ill post up a handful of the pictures that I took. I think these are some of the better ones, if you care to look at the rest of the posted gallery, there is a link to the website on the bottom of this post.

    The gear I used:
    Nikon D80
    Nikon 70-200 2.8
    Nikon 50 1.8
    Nikon 18-200 VR
    Sigma 10-20

    Please excuse the border and watermark. Its a photoshop action I use to batch resize my pictures.

    13 and 19 are awesome :h5:

    15 is cool, but the shadow of you or someone else on the left distracts. I'm sure there was nothing that could be done about that, except for waiting for the sun to come round.

    Alaska looks like somewhere I want to go in the future.

    Thanks :cool:

    I wont hold my breath :mamoru:

    Thanks...And yeah, the way the sun set up there, the sun went kind of sideways instead of up and down. But yes, I didnt notice the shadow until the picture hit my laptop...

    It was awesome...I would love to go back

    :hsugh: Read the 1st post :bigthumb:

    I :love: Alaska. I did the inside passage on a cruise. The only complaint was too much time on the boat, not enough exploring. Next time I'm renting an RV.

    This has spurred me on to get my photos edited and up of my trip to the Lake District here in the UK.


    I went like 2 months ago. No time to edit until now :hs:
