This was my 2nd Alaskan Cruise of the Inside Passage – so some of this may look familiar. One technical difference, beyond the company, was that this was shot with my Fuji X-T20 versus previously with my Canon 5d2. And since it was 6yrs later(2012 for reference here), though the same time of year, the days and light were really different, and am sure there was a few(more than) different frames. This year, there was a Skagway photo tour, a Juneau whale watching cruise, and a tour of Butchart Gardens when we stopped in Victoria BC. Although, with the Juneau stop, since I was only 2wks post op and sore post Skagway photo tour, I had to defer all long lens shooting to the hubs(@wadehas on flickr) with the reliable 70-200, who then managed to catch some spectacular bubble netting by some humpback whales. I sure was bummed to miss getting up personal with that, but alas, that is how it is. Still lots of photos of pretty mountains, lakes, ocean, an orca, some seals and sealions, and an eagle amongst all the massiveness of the gorgeous glaciers. In an upcoming follow up blog to this, I will write about post vacay project I did with select images from everyone in our group, but I’ll leave that for the next bit of words. Also, reminisce with instasnaps here #WEinAlaska2018.
For now, Happy Christmas Eve world…I present – Alaska 2.0, enjoy!
