Day 222: Up Tracy Arm! Part 2

Later in the day we saw a few other things than a glacier and a couple of bears… Another cruise ship! A whale drifted by the side of the ship.  That’s his back. There is the rest of…his tail… There is another one! Where?  Way, way out there.  You get used to spotting the blow […]

Day 221: Up Tracy Arm! Part 1

The next day of the cruise we headed up Tracy Arm, a 20 some mile long fjord up to Sawyer Glacier! “What do you mean, inside down?  It was the right way in the camera…” It was a foggy morning.  Apparently we missed a bunch of whales by not being up at 4:30am…althought the Dailylife […]

Day 220: A brief interlude, part 2

After that great Milky Way session, what happens but the Northern Lights came out tonight. (A three photo panorama!) (Click to enlarge; BACK to return!) Another three photo panorama. The Dailylife Daughter #1 and I went out to Bootlegger Trail to view them.  We had a good time.  There were a few other cars doing […]

Day 219: A brief interlude….

I went out star gazing tonight… 30 Second Exposures…high ISO’s…the first two have meteor trails.  The third one has an airplane trail. (30s f/4.0 ISO6400 17mm Canon 7D) (30s f/4.0 ISO5000 23mm Canon 7D) A photo from the Dailylife Wife’s camera…she has the fisheye lens.  I just get to borrow it! (30s f/0.0 ISO6400 9.00 […]

Day 218: Juneau, part 3

Here is our first glimpse of Mendenhall Glacier. The Dailylife Wife walks down to the shore. Juneau is a lush place… Off to the right about a mile is a BIG waterfall.  Those little spots? …People… There are spotting scopes to view the glacier through in the Visitor’s Center. The View. A nice view of […]

Day 217: Juneau, part 2

Next we went to the Glacier Botanical Gardens.  This was a landslide a guy named Steve recreated into a Botanical Garden to reclaim the area and prevent another slide! Besides being very lush and colorful (and wet…), Steve had another great idea!  He takes trees, with roots still attached, and plants them in the ground […]

Day 214: Juneau, part 1

Yup.  They change the day on the elevator rug to let people have some idea of when it is…if they want to mess with you they just have to  “reorder” the week a little! A two photo panorama from the top deck of our damp morning.  This is also a nice view of the moveable […]

You might have notice that in some of the panoramas the buildings tilt to the side some on some of the end photos.  That is an artifact of the panorama process that Adobe Elements uses.   ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>
