Still from that fishing trip (described here), so you get an idea of the scenery. It's not much and certainly not as good as what you'd expect from a cruise alongside the glaciers and all, but I thought some turned out alright.

This one from, taken from home-base (Craig, Ak) is made of 7 shots with the 24-120VR, stitched with Autostitch. [Click on it to get a better view]

Late light (after 9pm ;-)): can you spot 2 eagles? :p

#2, #4 and #5 are out of the world. I am headed to Denali and Seward day after tomorrow. I would be mighty proud if I got a few like you did.

Why, thank you so much for the compliments folks (blush :oops:). To all of you considering a trip up North: just do it! 8) Anand, have lots of fun, take as long a glass as you can, and as wide as you can: you'll use those 2 the most! ;-) :lol:

Magnifique Philippe !

#4 has quite an original point of view. Thanks for sharing. I think #2 is the one that really attracks me the most, like I want to be there too.

These are perfect in every way. Don't know how I could pick a favorite. Looks like a beautiful place for a trip. Is there an online gallery where I could see the exif? I love to learn from great pictures like these.

Roman, Mike, Vinod, Christian, thank you for commenting and letting me know your favorite. I like those you mentioned as well: pano, #2 and late light, in no particular order.

A little secret? #2 is a digital blend of one capture, exposed to the right (much like you do Roman). I used the technique described here: http://www.luminous-landscape.com/tutorials/digital-blending.shtml

Terri, thanks for looking and commenting. The gallery is available here, but if you download IExifer from www.opanda.com, you'll be able to right click on the pics right here at the cafe, too! 8) :) Also, all pics are shot in Raw, initially processed with Capture or RawMagick Lite and further processed in Photoshop (rotation, crop, USM, framing, etc...)

Thanks, folks! I had a great time, with both the camera and the fishing pole! ;-) :lol:

Phillipe, thanks, I am carrying a tokina 12-24, but my longest glass is only a 70-200 f/2.8 VR, I flirted with buying a 300 and a TC1.7, but with a 15month old to carry, I can't lug any more weight :(

Thanks for the great shots!

I'm going latter August, cruising south, with side trips, and will use my 24-120VR & 80-400VR.

Hi Philippe,

Nice captures! No's 2, 4 and 5 are my favourites. :) :)

I haven't been to Alaska in 30 years. Your shots make me want to do a return trip.

Thanks much Ken, Dennis, Hans, Gordon and everyone for looking.

Gordon, good eyes! 8) You get extra credit for spotting the eagles: they are on the phone pole (on the middle truss) and at the very top of the tree on the very far right. These birds were everywhere, and in large numbers, quite a sight! :p

Phillipe,

I'm glad that I have found the rest of your photos of you fishing trip. They are really striking. The atmosphere that they breath out is really peaceful. Normally I say, well this one and that one are my favorites, but that is impossible here, they are all superb !!!

Keep up the good work Phillipe

btw: What was the biggest trout you caught out there :)


Kind Regards


Johan
