Photos from the summer adventures

Here are some photos from our summer trip to Alaska.  Beautiful country up there, and well worth the trip. 

First shot is of a late afternoon sun on Mendenhall Lake, with the Glacier in the background.

Next is a shot if a glacier (not sure which one) coming off of the Juneau Icefield, as viewed from the Inside Passage.

 A shot of some waterfalls coming down the walls of Tracey Arm Fjord, falling an estimated 1500-2000 feet from top of the wall to the ocean.

Enough boring scenery?  Ok how about a close up shot of a juvenile eagle, seen along a hiking trail near Ketchikan.

And now back to your regularly scheduled scenery shots… another Tracey Arm Fjord shot, and a night shot of the Victoria, BC capital building.

I hope you like them, they were fun to take and I’ll share more as time permits.

Some new pics from the Zoo

Just a quick post on some new pictures taken at Woodland Park Zoo, Seattle, WA. 

Tree Shrews

"Got Nuts?"

These are Northern Tree Shrews, and getting them to stand still long enough for a in-focus shot was a challenge.

Flamingo

Pink Doesn't Stink

Just a shot of the Flamingo Exhibit in the Zoo, but I liked the colors.

A few new photos

I managed to get some photos recently of the local Tulips in La Conner, WA.  So here they are:

EDIT: ok the Picture misalignment finally bugged me so much I fixed it. 🙂

Another Photo Post

I swear I’ll get back to posting text and opinions soon. I know that’s what you’re here for… 🙂

In the mean time I’ve posted more photos from a recent trip to Woodland Park Zoo where I took some shots of various animals. Here are a few of my favorites.

The ocelots had a baby on 23Sep08 and this is a shot of nap time.
