Well done Anand (in this and the other post, part #1)! I find your use of the long lens for landscapes very a-propos to catch the various plays of light and textures. You've got some great stuff in here, and your blog (read it all, so far) is very enjoyable! 8) ;-)

I totally understand your frustration with carrying the gear, the park restrictions and the family duties... I think the best set-up for Alaska is just 2 lenses, a 12-24 and the absolute longest one is willing to deal with (maybe 300 f/4), with perhaps a TC on it.

Another great series, Anand! Thanks for posting - I remember many of those scenes from my trip last summer -- it's a beautiful place.

Thanks again, all. I appreciate the warm comments.

Phillipe, I owned a 300mm f/4 lens a while ago. I could not hand hold it safely under 1/1000 sec :(

What we need is VR built into all long lenses, most of my tele photo shots won't have worked without VR.
