hi everybody,

mentioned a while ago we were going to visit our daughter in anchorage and would post some shots on our returm. finally getting around to it. will try to include a mix of subjects. all shot with the ist dl with either the 18-55 kit lens or the sigma 70-300 macro (not apo sad to say). all pp to a greater or lesser degree. (mostly levels and sharpening anda little extra saturation).

while i'm typing....lost therubber eyecup for the viewfinder while hiking up a trailin alaskaand having the dickens of a time finding a replacement. anyone know of a supplier who carries them? have seen some on ebay but would really prefer a genuine pentax one. my manual says it's an "fn" eye cup; does anybody know if an "fl" would work? or some other one?? been missing it quite a bit.

all the best as usual, eric

here's one, turnagain arm on the way from anchorage to girdwood and the kenai:

this one's for the wildlife lovers. i had climbed a trail to get some "from above" shots of some Dall ewes and lambs and was standing pondering a different angle or something when this ram walked up overa knoll in front of me to (i think) check me out. this is un cropped and although i was at 300mm he was still very close.

think this will be all at, least for now:

Eric, Truly spectacular scenery, and captured very well! Alaska is definitely on the list of "places I must see before I die"! You've taken some excellent pictures--I especially like the water fall in slow motion. Post more if you have them. Until I get to the last frontier, let me live vicariously through your Pentax! Jay
