2017 Carnival Legend Alaskan Cruise - Day 5 - Juneau

Day 5 brought us to the Capital city of Alaska, Juneau.  Fun fact is that Juneau is a bit unusual among U.S. capitals in that there are no roads connecting the city to the rest of Alaska or to the rest of North America. 

For this stop we had decided to book us a photo safari excursion with Gastineau Guiding that would take us out whale watching as well as a little hike to the Mendenhall Glacier.  I wasn't sure what to expect as it was a "photo" safari where the tour guide was also suppose to be able to give some photography tips and tricks along the way.  We ended up absolutely loving this excursion and our primary tour guide Zach Kelly was incredibly knowledgeable about the wildlife and nature but also an incredible photographer so was just a great day.  We saw whales, birds, sea lions, seals, eagles, fish, and an incredible Glacier all within a few hours.  So now on to the pictures.

2017 Carnival Legend Alaskan Cruise - Day 4 - Skagway

On day 4 of the cruise we pulled into port in Skagway Alaska with some incredible cloud cover and beautiful views from every side of the boat.  We were arriving at the same time as the Norwegian cruise line so was also fun to watch them dock the ship behind us.

Once we were docked it was time to jump off on our excursion for the day which was to take a train (White Pass & Yukon Route) up the mountain and then bike down (it was on the bike that I realized, i need to get out of the house more, seriously out of shape, lol).  We didn't get a ton of pictures on the way down as well I was trying to make it without death.

Skagway was a lot of fun and there are a few different excursions here depending on your comfort and athletic levels.  The last picture below we noticed all the rocks painted when we pulled in and when we got a chance to ask one of the crew members it is a tradition at the end of the cruise season to pain the logo or some other tidbits on the rocks which we pretty interesting for some of these.

2017 Carnival Legend Alaskan Cruise - Day 1-3

One of Annita and I's favorite vacations are cruises and this year I got to check off one of my bucket list cruises, Alaska.  Annita has been to Alaska for work before and she told me how beautiful it was but until you experience it for yourself you really just don't know.  We decided to take one of the last cruises out of Seattle with Carnival cruise lines on the Carnival Legend cruise ship with some good friends of ours Ryan and Sarah Rovnak. 

The cruise started off in Seattle where we essentially just went from the airport to the dock to jump on the boat.  We were soon on board and ready for our 7 days of Alaskan adventure!  The itinerary was Day 1 - Seattle, Day 2 - Fun Day at Sea, Day 3 - Cruise Tracy Arm Fjord, Day 4 - Skagway, Day 5 - Juneau, Day 6 - Ketchikan, Day 7 - Victoria BC, Day 8 - arrive back in Seattle.

The First day was getting oriented on the ship and really getting ourselves settled for the next 7 days aboard the boat.  Day 3 brought us to our first destination which was a cruise of the Tracy Arm Fjord which would lead us to the Sawyer Glacier.  While it was a bit rainy and overcast the views were absolutly stunning.

2017 our year in Review

This year has really flown by it seems but I have had an incredible year behind the lens and while my little weekly photo challenge I started here was a failure on my behalf I did still shoot a ton this year. 

January 2017 we started off the year with some good friends wedding reception (they got married in Disney last year) and was able to setup a photo booth that we really had some fun with.  Just so happened to be on Annita and I's anniversary so Wedding cake bonus!

February 2017, Annita and I were able to get out and do some adventuring around the area and joining a group doing some skiing up in Pennsylvania and checking out some brewery's (not at the same time mind you).

March 2017 led us into Cherry Blossom season down at the Tidal Basin in DC where I spent many a mornings throughout the month.  Annita and I also ventured out to check out a waterfall at Crabtree Falls in Tyro Virginia which was nice but we got a little surprise along the way, yes the snake is harmless but I almost jumped into the water when it popped out.

April 2017 - We finally got a chance to visit the Murphy's in PA and Annita and Kris did a little running as well.  We also got to do a little more exploring and bought annual passes to Meadowlark gardens and checked out Luray Caverns.

May was a pretty slow adventure month but we still manged to head up into Maryland and checkout another botanical garden, Brookeside Gardens.

In June we ventured out to Burke Lake park which is close by the house to check out some sunrises and get some walking in.  I also made a few adventures down to the Tidal Basin for some sunrise fun.  June was also my first baseball game in DC and got to see the Texas Rangers play which was an incredible time with my wife and met some Texas fans at the game that made us think of Dallas.

August we had our wonderful friends the Thornberry's from Texas come in to visit and you can guess it, I did some sunrise shots at the Tidal Basin and Naitonal Mall area.  At the end of August we headed to Seattle to jump on a Carnival Cruise to Alaska which was INCREDIBLE (that will be a seperate blog all in it's own).

October we got to be a part of the amazing wedding for our good friends Kathleen and Jonathan and headed back to Dallas for a short trip for my annual company BBQ.  I also got the chance towards the end of the month to head out with my good friend Angela to catch some sunrises on Skyline drive.

November and December pretty much blended together with work and everything but we did get our first Snow of the season a little earlier this year so Angela and I grabbed the cameras and headed out to Great Falls to see what we could capture (I need work capturing snow falling).  I know this will suprise everyone that made it this far but I also spent some time down at the Monuments shooting sunrise.

That is a quick glance at what we did in 2017 and already have some fun plans for 2018 and looking forward to capturing as much of it as I can through images and video for our memories and to share with everyone.

Early mornings in Washington DC

Sunrises are quickly becoming one of my favorite things to shoot, maybe it's the sunflare or maybe it's just the peacefulness of being only one of the few people crazy enough to be up at that time of day.  This time of year it is even a little more difficult as sunrise is so early in the morning but that has not stopped me the last two days! 

One of the things I am setting out to do is try and shoot a time lapse twice a month because I really do like the content that they can add for videos or just standalone to show off a location.  Now I just have to find the formula that works best for the way I shoot and with the equipment that I use because I still want to keep my kit down to a minimum so not carrying extra wired triggers around for the camera and using the internal app on the Sony's that has some limitations.

Anyway, enough talk let me show you pretty things.

Great Sunrise over Burke Lake

One of my favorite times of day is to shoot is sunrise, not a fan of the time of day this time of year to get up in order to catch it but that is not the point.  Last Saturday we woke up in what I thought was plenty of time and got out to the lake around 5:30 and the Sun was already coming up so it became a mad scramble to get the camera setup and a time lapse running.  It was a great morning and Annita (My wife) got her morning yoga in on the pier while I took photos so a win/win for both of us!  Here are a few of the shots from that day.

Plan is to get out this Thursday, June 8th to try and catch sunrise downtown by the monuments. 

Catching Up - Week 14-21 2017

I have failed.  Simple, to the point and honest.  I was not able to complete more then 7 weeks of continuous updates for the 52 week challenge and now have fallen completely behind.  How often does this also happen in our every day lives not just with our hobbies.  We start with a drive to accomplish something and various factors creep in and next thing you know you are over your head trying to catch up.  I am not going to try and catch up at this point but I will continue to use the 52 week challenge ideas to capture them this year just may not be on the week as planned. 

So now I just adapt and find how I want to share my art and for that I will bring you along on our adventures as we explore the Northeast as recent transplants.

The last couple of trips are just me and my wife wanting to get out and explore the area and see some of the beauty that Northern Virginia has to offer.  We started off close to home by checking out Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in Vienna.

After walking around the gardens which are beautiful we were a bit hungry so decided to give Astro Doughnuts and Fried Chicken a try and it did not disappoint.  I know what your thinking, Fried chicken at a doughnut place but you would be surprised!

Next we head out west towards the Shenandoah National park to check out the Luray Caverns which was discovered in 1878 by 5 locals.  When we arrived we noticed an abundance of tour buses and quickly realized the crowd we were in for.  Even though the crowd had numbers the employees moved everyone through quickly and the wait really was not that bad.

Following that Memorial day was right around the corner so we decided to find another botanical garden to check out in the area, might as well get those steps in while you check out some beauty in nature!  This lead us to Brookside Gardens in Maryland and it was equally as impressive as Meadowlark and even had a butterfly exhibit!  We did not check it out this trip but will be planning a trip back soon and it will be on the agenda!  For Memorial day we headed out to Burke Lake park as the fog had rolled in pretty thick so wanted to see how the sunrise would pop off, it didn't, but we got in a good walk and some fun pictures!

We have a few trips planned in the next couple of months but will do my best not to wait months before updating again. 

 

Week 8-13 Feb/March 2017 - The catch up blog and Cherry Blossoms!

I am a little bit behind but have been out shooting so the next updates may have a bit of a theme to them because I absolutely love the shots from the last few days out shooting the Cherry Blossoms here in Washington, DC.  This is a catch up blog to cover the last 6 weeks in an attempt to get me back on track! 

I was not sure what to expect when I went out to the Tidal Basin this year as we had a freeze right before and thought it may have killed off a majority of the blossoms for the season.  I was pleasantly surprised when I went out for 3 days last week in the early shadows of the morning to capture the sunrise and I am glad I did! Over those 3 days I was able to capture some incredible shots, meet up with a good friend for some fun and it inspires me to want to be out every morning with a camera in my hand. 

I Hope you enjoy!

 As you can tell from the shots above I have a theme and it is the Tidal Basin.  This was a very Foggy morning but thought the Jefferson Memorial reflection along with the Cherry Blossoms was a great shot.  #Sony A7RM2, F/4, 1/250th, ISO 400.

Week 7 - February 2017 Artistic: Bokeh

My wife and I headed out this afternoon to check out a brewery we had heard about from some friends out in Loudoun county.  Trekking up to the brewery we were not sure what to expect but it surpassed our expectations 10 fold for sure.  The views are great which you will see in the image below but most of all the beer was also very tasty.  We shared 2x 4 beer flights trying out their Red Merl Irish Red, Pants off DIPA, Scott Brown Ale, Stout of Control Irish Stout, Tart 31 Cherry Ale, and the Straw Golden IPA.   My favorite of course was the Stout and the wife really enjoyed the Tart 31 Cherry Ale.  Add on some tasty flat bread pizza and it was a great Saturday afternoon.

Anyway, enough about the great beer (but seriously if you are in the area go try the beer) and on to the weekly photo.  I added a few after the challenge photo that were also contenders.

Week 5 - February 2017 - Portrait: Movement

This weeks shot (a little late on the upload) was taken when we went on a little ski outing with our new church here in Virginia to Whitetail resort (https://www.skiwhitetail.com/) in southern Pennsylvania.  There has not been a ton of natural snow but the conditions have been good enough for them to continue to make man made snow and while I did not ski Annita did and she said it was not bad during the morning runs but got a bit slushy in the afternoon.

For this week the shot is a bit cropped as I was testing out the Sony 70-400 F/4-5.6 A mount lens w/LAEA3 adapter from Sony to use on the A6300 and A7RII.

Week 4 - January 2017 - Portrait: Headshot

This week the challenge was to take a headshot portrait and it was a bit of a crazy week but that just made me have to think about the theme and try and get a little creative. 

I think shooting figures like this actually helps you to understand where light falls and such and well Superman is awesome.

Week 3 - January 2017 - Artistic: Red

I had multiple ideas this week and wanted to try and get outside and do something but couldn't get together a fully creative idea.  After talking with my wife Annita she said why don't you share the fun fact of what we learned in Ireland about Guinness, it's actually Red.  I loved the idea but not had the technical challenge of how do I show that Guinness is in fact Red vs a black.

Here is the Behind the Scenes setup and the final shot.

Week 2 - Jan 2017 - Landscape: Traditional Landscape

Already a bad start to this challenge when I am a few days late posting the image for the previous week.  I did get a chance to get out and go shoot for this image and found a new trail at Burke Lake Park to get out and get some sunrise shots over water. 

Superman did not make the cut this week mainly because I forgot him but instead I captured the source of his power front and center and why only have 1 Sunburst when you can have 2 with a reflection! 

 This is probably more HDR landscape then traditional but I liked the way it came out with the Reflections.  Sony A7RII w/16-35 f/4 Lens - 3 exposures -3,0,3 #SonyA7RII #BurkeLakePark

Week 1 - Jan 2017 - Self Portrait

Time to kick off the challenge for 2017 to myself.  For the first week the challenge is a Self Portrait which I think is hard for any photographer as the majority of us enjoy the creative process behind the camera but not as fond of it when we are in front of the lens. 

For this 52 week challenge I have decided to add a few additional elements for myself.  First being a technical one which is thinking of how to capture the image in B&W so all 52 images will be B&W.  The second is a bit of fun which is bringing my friend Superman along for the images in some form or fashion. 

So here it is for the first week!

2017 - 52 Week Photo Challenge

As I started looking at ideas for photo challenges in 2017 I had a few ideas.  The first is my continued growth and completing challenges in the Arcanum (http://www.thearcanum.com/) but also a 52 week challenge where I have a different shot to capture each week.  The categories I have chosen are Portrait, Landscape and Artistic and various themes for each week.  I pulled the list down and not going to change it as I want the challenge of thinking for each shot.  Most of them will be shot the same week as the challenge a few especially portraits I may work a few themes over a weekend due to setting up the studio but will edit them the week they are due.

Getting ready for 2017

One of the things that I always enjoyed about sharing my photography is the story along the way and all of the experiences that I got to share with everyone to hopefully entice them to also take that journey on their own. 

For 2017 I am going to try and get back into more sharing with a story versus just throwing up some images on social media with a little funny tag and moving on. 

This is my first little post as I still try and figure out what it is I want to accomplish with this.
