    I just got back from a cruise to Alaska's Inside Passage (I highly recommend it) and wanted to post a few of the pictures.

    I hope I can embed them OK. Thanks for looking.

    Really nice photos! I especially like the sea otter and the Humpback. It looks like you got quite close to them.

    What ship were you on? What lenses were you using?

    Thanks, folks.

    Bob - I used a Nikon 70-200VR with a Kenko 2xTC on my D-100 for those pictures. I sure could have used some more telephoto, especially on the humpbacks. Alaska has a law forbidding you from encroaching less than 100 yards from a humpback. I might trade in my 70-200 for an 80-400VR.

    Leigh - thanks. I do recommend an Alaskan trip highly. I would like to stay a couple of months. I posted some more pictures on my website at:

    Thanks for the shots - a great preview for my upcoming trip....

    We're going the end of August on the Radisson Seven Seas Mariner, 7 days from Whittier, Alaska to Vancouver.

    Wow, Gary, great shots! You got a lot luckier with the wildlife than I did on my cruise tour last year. You obviously did a better job selecting your shore excursions!
