Love looking at everyone's photos. I'll jump in with a couple of photos from a recent trip to Alaska. I'll have to try to visit this thread regularly.

Like the moose photo. We drove through Alaska for several weeks without seeing a moose, thinking all those warning signs were a joke. Then one nearly Tboned our truck lol. Did you take one of the cruises to get that hump backed whale?

The moose photo came when I FINALLY convinced DW that I had found a trail that was unlikely to lead to a wildlife encounter. We topped a little rise and the moose was about 30 yards ahead of us. I moved forward with the camera and DW retreated to the top of the hill. A cow moose later wandered by. Needless to say the hike was cut short and we didn't try another.

Yes, the whale photo came about on a short (3-4 hour) cruise in Prince William Sound. We were early in the season so there were only about 15 of us on a boat that holds over 200. We came across 2 or 3 whales that were bubble feeding. The whales would swim in circles exhaling through their blowholes to herd the fish into a small area and then would swim into the school from below emerging from the water with their mouths open, as in the photo.

The Park Service Guide said that he had only seen this once before in his 20+ years of leading the cruises so we felt extremely fortunate.

Messing around downstairs some more. Started reading the manual for darktable. Spent yesterday afternoon and evening playing with printer settings, printing straight from the iPad. Not too shabby. But not professional quality on the prints, either. Close, perhaps.

Want to try tethering the camera to darktable later on.

Used to love the Outer Banks - back when there was nothing but sand and water. Probably all parceled, sold off and built up now.

Don't know. Some kid fishing - I walked up with the camera and I told him to keep fishing - just wanted pictures of the sky.

Great studio shots, BTW!

Okay, I don't even know what it is (yeah, some part of a guitar) but I like how you control reflections and shadows. It could hang on a wall and mean something to the right group of people.
