So, nearly two and a half months after we took the vacation, I finally got the photos edited and posted to my website. It seems that about a quarter of the images I shot turned out to be ‘web-worthy’… Not to say the others were bad shots, but rather the selection I posted were what I enjoyed the most!

We had a great time taking the vacation, and I had a lot of fun taking a lot of pictures. There are still a few things I have left to play around with, such as some video and timelapse work, which I will get posted once I am happy with the result. But all the stills are up and ready for everyone to enjoy!
Please feel free to comment and critique things… I am still learning both photography itself, as well as Aperture 3. Suggestions are always helpful! Thank you for visiting my blog
So I have had a productive start to the Memorial Day weekend! I was able to finish off another day of post processing photos taken during our trip to New Orleans. I only have a few more days to edit, then I will have all the main photos up.

The vacation was much needed after a long winter, as well as celebrating my rehabilitation after the accident last August. It was the first time I was able to get out and take some pictures in quite a while. I also had to realize some new limitations as I was unable to move the way I used to, so some angles were just unobtainable.
The trip was a success as Stacey and I had a great time, the sun and warmth did wonders for spirit (and leg!), but also really got us thinking about leaving Alaska at some point, sooner than later…
So, quite a few years ago, I was quite lucky and took a trip to remote Alaska. I stayed at an amazing fishing lodge on the Agulowak River. While there, a group of us were able to take a flight over to the Katmai National Park which is known for bears!
It was an amazing and memorable trip, and an experience of a lifetime… The adrenaline rush of walking in bear country, knowing that, without question, a bear was within 100 yards of you at any given time, is a feeling that you can’t get anywhere else, doing anything else. While still relatively new to photography, I think that a few photos actually turned out OK! Enjoy…
