Beautiful pictures, I really enjoyed them. I gotta ask, what's the water temp with all those cubes floating around in it? Thanks for the post and pics.

Dale...
I forgot to ask if you used any filters for the Alaska photos, such as a circular polarizer.
Thanks,
Paul

I didn't check there in Holgate Arm but the water temp in the general area is around 55 degrees.

The only filter is the UV Haze I have on my lenses to protect the glass.

Re: Crab pots, schmab Pots...try dodging Icebergs!!

I really appreciate the photos, I would have loved to have seen some done last night over the glacier with the Supermoon lighting it up, do you have any way to do really good low light photography with that camera. Amazingly enough I have not bought a good digital SLR, yet, but before I leave I am going to get one, and then I will have my little Kodak digital for some stuff and the good one for other stuff.

I am going to end up down in southern Chile, and I know I will want photos and I will be glad to share them...or is that called gloating haha. Either way I will share them, and I really do appreciate you sharing these. They are so beautiful, they remind us all of why we go through everything it takes to get to the point where we can become liveaboard cruisers.

I really enjoyed those

Dale, your photos are excellent. You have a great eye and you do subject matter that I really enjoyed looking at. You get extra credit for getting so much mileage out of a peanut in the ones with that squirrel

Have you sailed much outside Alaska? I am sure that you have beautiful photos from everywhere you go, and I would love to see them. I looked at the ones you have in the links, and if they are a sample I would say you are way above average.
