    Due to techincal difficulties, all threads that were posted after Feb. 5th were deleted.
    I noramlly wouldn't post something again, but I did see that I got an unusual amount of comments [for me :er: ] on my recent Alaska photos, although because of the maintenance problems I wasn't able to view the comments.

    Sooo, I'm going to post these four photos from my Alaskan cruise last August again. Some editing has been done to them. I used an old, poor quality Canon Powershot, but these four actually turned out nicely because of the lighting.

    #1. A close-up of ice at Mendenhall Glacier (in... I want to say Juneau?).

    #2. Glacier Marjorie, at the end of Glacier Bay, from the boat. It was stunning; and we experienced quite a bit of global warming and glacier melting.

    #3. From a whale-watching boat in Ketchikan. We also saw some fabulous orcas.

    #4. A black bear cub on the rainforest hike in Ketchikan. A mother and another cub accompanied this one!

    Good idea to post it again.
    So I repeat my comments.
    You took outstanding shots taking into account you just a powershot at this time.
    Good Job :thumbup:

    Wow! Great shots, what an amazing experience.
    Sounds (and looks) like your whale-watching experience really beat mine.

    You are so right in putting these four back up after the crash! They all four are really worth a second showing! Those four are the best of the original (now lost forever) post! Wow, what an experience! When I was your age, my farthest reach into the world was as far as I could go by bike within my home town and that was about it! ;)

    I am particularly taken in by the colours of the ice in the first of these four photos! I really really like that one heaps!

    But I feel they now more belong into Landscape and Nature, right?

    The third one strikes me. Just wondering what is that blue stripe in the background? I think the sharpness of the tail fin is a little marred by it.

    love the 1st shot but #3 will be getting nominated
    Always makes me laugh that WHALE watching trips go after Orca's what with Orca's being part of the Dolphin Family

    Thanks for the comments, everyone.

    LaFoto-- thank you for moving it, I was unsure when I first posted of what forum it should be in.

    Thanks, everyone seems to like that one. The blue stripe is part of the land, but like I said, the camera I was using didn't have the best focus, so the far-off background got really blurred.

    I. Love. Whales. Therefore, I love #3. But #1 and #2 are fantastic as well.

    Bla-- thank you. I have about 30 photos of the whales that I have yet to tool with, if you'd like to see them.

    Nice photos, makes me remember when I was cruising Alaska coast, and yes the mendenhall glacier is in the Juneau area!
