Off the Yacht and Headed to Seattle!

Back in Petersburg after 8 incredible days cruising the inside passage.  This will be the first in a series of posts describing the trip.  Although I am sometimes prone to hyperbole; this was AWESOME. 

The shot at the top is a 9 shot panorama shot from our yacht, the Northern Song, just after we left the harbor last week, beautiful, bluebird day for shooting.  Biggest tip for panoramas overall, keep everything the same except field-of-view.  When shooting from a moving platform remember to keep the shutter speed up.

We were joined shortly after I shot the pano by four Dahl's porpoises.  These are the fastest marine mammals and they put on an incredible show for us.  The shot below was taken just before the porpoise surfaced.  The detail in the exhalation bubbles about to burst the surface is very, very cool.

Off to Seattle now to meet the folks at Creative Live.

I will have posts up everyday detailing the trip and passing on some of our lessons learned.

Fiat Lux!
