Cruising Tracy Arm Fjord

Well our luck of unseasonably nice weather finally ran out and of course it was while we were cruising the Tracy Fjord Inner Passage. So, if shooting from a moving ship didn’t offer enough of a challenge, throw in a steady heavy mist to bouts of light rain. My original plan was to shoot from the bow of the ship, I had scouted out a couple of places that looked promising, but in the end, I found a sheltered area at the stern. The rain covers I ordered just before leaving worked great once I got used to shooting with them covering the camera.

What can I say, just breath taking beauty, even when the weather is bad.

Just more breath-taking scenery from the Inner Passage.

As you can see from these shots, bad weather shouldn’t detour you, I actually welcome unpleasant weather; as all this beauty passed by, I just wanted to be on solid ground with my tripod and ISO set to 50 but, I’ll take these hand-held captures any day.

The weather gives a hint as to why this is called Fords Terror Wilderness (zoom in on the iceberg and check out the Bald Eagles).
