In which I really wish I had a telephoto lens

Our first real port was Juneau, Alaska.

Very cool town.

The first thing we did was go on a whale watch. Just the four of us and Captain Rick, our leader. He took us out on the water and we saw some truly amazing things.

A juvenile bald eagle.

Some Sea Lions.

And yes! Even a whale.

I only wish I had had the capability to get more detailed shots.

Next time I'll just buy the stinkin' telephoto lens.

  4. Lara, next time just rent one! My sis does it all the time until she's saved up the money for the lens she wants, she rents it on a case by case basis.
    Lovely shots btw, what a beautiful place to get to visit.

  5. Those pictures are still pretty impressive even without a telephoto lens. I kind of like having more of the scene in the picture.

  10. OK. That is way cool. I have always wanted to go whale watching, but Ryan doesn't want to. He sees it as hours on the ocean, bored, in hopes of seeing something and never seeing anything - which is a waste of money.

    Oh, and you may not have had a telephoto lens, but your pictures are still awesome!!
