Alaskan Adventures

I have been back from Alaska for about a week and I still have not looked at all the pictures I took there!

And for the first time I can remember I had 10 days in Alaska with no rain!! My group had a great time, and from what I have seen, they all took wonderful pictures.

Here is a picture of the group with the bears.

 There is still space available in next year's tour and you can have your own Alaskan Adventure.

 

I also made a few videos while I was there.  You can watch a video of 2 cubs playing here.  And you can watch 2 cubs nursing here.

Here are a few of my favorite images so far.

This year there was a fox hanging out in the area, and one night I got some great images.

After the bear tour, I went to Homer to visit my friends Ken and Diane Briggs.  As soon as they picked me up from the airport we went directly to the harbor to board the boat that I am using for next March’s Bald Eagle trip.  While summer isn’t know for the best time to see eagle (not like the thousands that will be there in March) we did manage to get some good pictures of sea otters and some sea birds.

I did get a chance to photograph some eagles and I can’t wait to go back in March when there will be thousands.  There are still a few spaces left!

I hope everyone is safe from the heat, fires and rains that are plaguing the world right now.
