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



The wife and I did our longest/farthest trip yet over the Labor Day holiday with a trip around to Aialik Bay. Not much wind (if you don't count the 28G35 on the last leg home) but it was warm and sunny which made for a really nice time.

Here's some more photos.

Enjoy

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Yes but you have no problems trying to find ice at a remote anchorage.

Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.

The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!

In response to a PM request heres some info on my photography:

I use a Canon 50D with Canon lenses or a Canon 980 IS.

I use the lowest ISO/ASA setting I possibly can. I do not like grain/noise so I work hard to shoot with a low ISO setting. It is rare for me to use higher than ISO 400, although my Canon gives good results in some conditions with ISO as high as 3200. The shots on this trip were shot at ISO 100 and ISO 200. I used 200 at times to give me that one extra stop of shutter speed to help reduce blur from camera motion.

I always shoot in RAW format to get as much data as possible. It means a bit more work "processing" the images but to me it's worth it in the end.

For most shooting I use auto focus. With poor lighting I sometimes have to manually focus or when doing some macro shots I manually focus...otherwise I let Canon do the focusing. My camera does allow me to pick the focus point used by the camera and I will sometimes focus on a specific point then recompose to make the shot.

Shooting Mode: I never use full auto. If in a situation where I think I might have to shoot very quickly I will set the camera to Program (on the 980 I use Program mode since that camera is more limited in what you can do) and let it make the choice on exposure. Otherwise I select either Aperature or Shutter priority depending on the situation. For the shots in Aialik I used Shutter priority.

Exposure: I set the camera to under expose all shots 1/3 to 2/3 stop...sometimes more. With digital cameras if you overexpose and blow out an area you have just white...the data is gone. If underexposed you have a chance of fixing your mistake so I try to error on the underexposed side.

Processing:

I use Photoshop CS4 to process the RAW images. If I do things right with the camera all I have to do is crop...but what I usually do adjust exposure, brightness and contrast so that the image "looks" right, looks like what I remember it as. For a lot of the shots in this gallery I also used some adjustment tools to knock down the exposure on the sky a bit. Shooting dark blue water, dark green mountains and a light blue sky can be a stretch at times. I will also usually sharpen the images a bit and add a bit of saturation, but I don't up the saturation to unreal levels. The colors you see in these photos is what we were seeing from the boat.

I'm very much an amateur photographer. The cameras and software I use are capable of far more than I ever get out of them.

I'm glad you guys like the photos. Y'all should come up here and take some of your own.
