    Default A few photos from this season's boating

    Used to be an avid photographer, but hadn't really got into digital photography. But I found I was missing a lot of opportunities for good photos out on the water. So this year I bought a digital camera and some lenses and went to it.

    Thought I'd share a few pics with my fellow boaters. Hope you like them, and thanks for looking.

    Sea lions on Rocky Island in Icy Strait and Humpback whale breaching in Frederick Sound.

    Great photographs. A friend of mine keeps his boat in Hoonah. He spent a lot of time in Glacier Bay this season. Any picts of the real big bear on the whale carcass? I heard there was a nice one working it over.
    Spending my kids' inheritance with them, one adventure at a time.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    Only saw the one bear with the whale carcass. Wasn't a whole lot left of the whale by then, and the bear seemed to be chewing on it more than eating it.

    The Eagle, the Raven and the Bonapartes are fantastic.
    What DSLR are you shooting?

    Thanks. The camera is a Canon 7D. My two wildlife lenses are the 70-200L and 100-400L.
