We’ve just returned from a two week trip, which included a week in Alaska with our daughter, son-in-law, and grand-boys, a quick couple days in the Bay Area for business, and then a few days in Orange County to celebrate our son’s 40th birthday. It was a wonderful trip, but I’m glad to not be living out of a suitcase right now (although we leave Wednesday for a couple nights in Utah). I also came home with a determination to pack lighter and to look for lightweight luggage with spinner wheels!
I have almost 2500 photos to go through- mostly Alaska, but the last 450 are of a surfing competition in Huntington Beach (one of my most fun photography experiences ever!). No, I definitely did not have the right lens to photograph surfing, but my Nikon autofocus system performed admirably, considering the limited reach I had with my 24-120 f/4.
The view above is from my daughter’s deck in Alaska. I will be posting more photos over the next few weeks as I get them processed.
