Photo of the day 2/24/2012 – “Untitled”

After giving out some tips to someone today about what to see and do in Alaska, I wanted to revisit what was the highlight of my trip…A two and a half hour flight-seeing trip that included landing on a glacier in the Sheldon Amphitheater at the hiking basecamp.

There is so much to tell about this photo. It’s probably worth at least a couple thousand words. I’ll have to save those for another time.

Photo of the day 2/23/2012 – “Untitled”

I have tens of thousands of photos that have been virtually piling up from years of travels. Kelli wanted to take some of them and hang them on her wall. Here’s one she picked out.

I have to admit I wasn’t too thrilled with it at first because the original just looked flat and unlifelike. But if you’ve been to this area of Yellowstone, you know it doesn’t even look lifelike when you are standing there.

So I took my novice photo processing skills and gave it a whirl. I think it’s OK for my level of processing ability. No, I didn’t add the rainbow; it appears for about 15 minutes a day if the sun is out.
