This is to pretty for me to look at. I am jealous. A place I will never see.

Thank you so much for sharing. Look for some more. Yeah guess I gotta go to the BLOG :>))
Beautiful images. Bit different than the usual posted, I like this.

Thanks Gale. I ran into rains after day #2. It did not change the way we enjoyed Alaska a wee bit, but the photos came out crap :). But I guess it is the memories that last, isn't it?

Thanks. It was day 1. The weather went South after that :(

I ran into rains pretty much on every day after. But still it was a very enjoyable visit.

I tried to make as much lemonade I could for the lemons handed over to me by the weather gods ;), but sweeping landscapes suck when the light is very muddy.

Thanks Terri.

Vinod - I would not have done a thing without it. No was I was going to use a tripod here and there was a stiff wind as well.

I should have tried a single exposure - develop many trick, but I have not been too happy with the results.

GND filters seem to give best bang for the buck and very less time to spend in post processing, I like them.

Anand,

Too bad the weather went to bits, but you sure captured some nice scenery here. I'll have to get me one of those GND filters... It's always something, isn't it? :twisted: ;-) :lol:

I don't have any photos without the GND on them :). Not that I do not like digital GND, I used it in this photo below, but given a chance, I would use the GND filter, saves so much pain later :)
