Photoblog: Tracy Arm Fjord and Sawyer Glacier

In July 2013, the family and I took a cruise to Alaska. One off the days was spent sailing up Tracy Arm Fjord to see Sawyer Glacier.

We signed up for a room with a balcony so we could sit out there as the little one napped in early afternoon. As it happened, we were stuck on the balcony as we visited Tracy Arm.

I thought ahead and had my camera and lenses out there with me, so got quite a few pictures.

Tech Notes: Shot on a Nikon D700 using a Sigma 15-30mm, a Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 and a Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8. Images were taken in RAW and processed in Photoshop Elements.

Since switching to the D700, I’m seeing weaknesses with the Sigma zooms that weren’t apparent with the smaller sensor in the D200. May be time to look at upgrading to Nikkor glass on the wide-angle side.
