There are some places on earth that you cannot see without getting on a ship. Alaska is one of those places. I boarded a cruise in Seattle and travelled through the inland passage to Juneau, Skagway, Glacier Bay, Ketchikan and Victoria. When there one has the option to sign up for various tours. This cruise line ship happened to be the RubyPrincess, but all of them have similar if not the exact same tours. In Juneau, Mendenhall Glacier is a must. This is the only place I actually used a tripod. Very where else taking photographs were hand held. In Skagway, we took the trip to the Yukon in a bus only to return by train. Beautiful landscapes. Glacier Bay is such a scenic place to raise the camera. The entire ship enters and rotates to view the glacier. Ketchikan we boarded another boat to visit Misty Fjords. Again breath taking. You can see what I captured in photographs in Recent Work. Here is one example.
