The Eagles Have Landed!!
One of my favorite places to visit is Alaska. It offers such unique experiences for both wildlife and landscape. I was somewhat apprehensive about the lengthy ferry ride from Juneau to Haines. What I didn’t foresee was just how beautiful the scenery would be along the journey. Simply spectacular!! There are private cabins available if you just want to relax. The cafeteria on board also serves a delicious breakfast so it is a stress free trip. Colby’s workshops never disappoint. I was amazed at how close we were to the bald eagles. Each day was filled with abundant opportunities to capture some great action shots. Colby as usual was “coaching” us along the way. As an example, the first day I was on adrenal overload and not getting the best shots. His feedback was to just be patient and read the eagle’s body language and I’ll know when they are about to take flight. Great feedback and when I embraced it, I started to get great shots. At the end of the day we collectively focused on post processing tools: Lightroom, Photoshop, Topaz etc, Our accommodations were great: 4 bedroom house with an amazing view. Colby is a great photo educator and a lot of fun to be around. Looking forward to my next adventure with him.
