    Haven't had time to take any regular pictures with my DSLR because of having a newborn in the house.

    But I did have time to take this shot with my iPhone and messed around with this app called Piratize!

    Its simple and pretty darn cute I must say!

    Here are 2 pirates (wife and Kiki)

    Great shots Menehune Man, Mel, Tat, and Asuhoru. Your baby pirate is superbad.

    I went up to Alaska for the 4th to visit family. I'll post some of the pics over the next few days.

    This first one is the Chugach Mountain Range just east of Anchorage. Rugged stuff that goes on forever. Props to the Alaska Airlines Jet. That window was primo for photos. There were some big forest fires up there, so there's some significant haze in the pic.



    Right away we went down to Seward, on Resurrection Bay, for the 4th of July celebration and the Mount Marathon Race. We stayed in a little cabin so it was pretty easy going, but I slept on a hide-a-bed with one of my nephews and sleeping on that damn thing was truly "roughing it". We built a campfire which was great fun. Days were warm, but the evenings were cool. The warmth of the fire on your face felt great in contrast to the cool on your back. I'd forgotten how pleasureable a campfire is. It's very hypnotic. I'm anxious to do it again.




    After the fire, the pulsing glow of the coals keeps you up a little longer before calling it a night. If you hold your hands up close to the monitor, you can feel the warmth. Go ahead. You know you want to.

    Love those fire shots. Can see many shapes within them.

    Here's a top/living room shelf shot.
    There's a dolphin within the Lava Lamp too!

    I have a piece of driftwood. It's in the lower, left hand corner of the "Lava Lamp" photo above.

    But... check out what I noticed and zoomed in on here...


    OMG!

    Cool shots guys. The eclipse sequence is my favorite.

    Here's a few more from the Alaska adventure. First is another shot from the plane, somewhere over British Columbia.



    Next is Fireweed. This plant grows all over Alaska, sometimes in expansive stands that turn a hillside purple.



    This is a pic of the craggy peaks outside of Palmer. The forest fire smoke was pretty heavy that day.

    Jim75, those Alaska shots are spectacular. The purple flowers look like orchids. The hillsides must be nice with these coloring them all purple.

    All of the photos on these pages are great in their own way. It's good to see all kinds of images no matter what they are or what subjects they cover. Photography is art, a passion, newsworthy and all that.

    One day we hiked up to the Raven Glacier at Crow Pass. It's about 8 miles roundtrip from the trailhead and you gain about 2800 feet in elevation, not counting rises and falls along the way. Not a killer, but it weeds out the casual strollers. One foot in front of the other. It'll be worth it.



    It was nice and warm and the hike gets your blood circulating real good. When we got to the little mountain lake/pond near the top, one of my nephews insisted on going for a dip. The water is coming straight from glacier and snowpack, so it's ice cold. He laid down in it for a short while, then popped out with a big grin and said "I'm numb". A true Alaskan.



    At the top of the pass, we stopped to take it all in for a while. We had a snack, including Kona coffee glazed mac nuts from Tropical Farms Hawaii. Here's one of me and two of my nephews in front of Raven Glacier.

    The trip down is veritable cake. Just breezin' from here on in.



    As it turns out, the Menehunes are widely traveled. Witness the hoodoo they left behind.

    Thanks for the comments on the pics. Alaska is definitely an awe inspiring place. It's also very cold and dark in the winter. You need to enjoy winter sports or being inside a lot, but you can have frequent moose and occassional bears in your yard for your viewing pleasure.

    Brian, the BC Mountains, fireweed, and peaks w/smoke were all shot with the 18-200m. The others were shot with the 12-24mm.

    I'll throw this out there in case anyone else has this experience with their camera (if it's an SLR). Quite a while back, I started having spots and blips show up in my photos, particularly in skies or any area of the pic that had little detail. I've done a ton of processing to 'photoshop' them out. I cleaned my lenses good to no avail. I wondered if there was dust that had gotten inside the lenses or if the camera sensor had gotten dust on it. I assumed that in either of those instances it would require shipping to the manufacturer for a costly cleaning. Turns out, this is common and can be remedied with an air blower, not areosol though. So I got a Giotta air blower, put the camera on mirror lock-up, and a couple of puffs did the trick.

    Maybe more Alaska pics later, but here's three shots from Friday morning on my way to work in Kona. First is Molokai, Lanai, and West Maui. Second is the West Maui mountains. Third is Lanai and Maui. The clouds obscure the land that connects west Maui with Haleakala.
