Last week I went out with the tripod and took some long exposure high dynamic range photos up on Anton Larson Road.
That very same night I went and got a shot at the Aurora for the first time. These are my first photos of the Aurora ever:
Still a few more updates to come but I’m almost all caught up.
Still have quite a bit of catching up to do. Here is a random selection of photos from the past few weeks or months.

Here is yet another catching up post. For these shots we were on a hike out to Summit Lake here on the island. It was a gorgeous 5 or so mile hike out to the lake. It was cloudy the whole day for the most with the Sun breaking through occasionally but unfortunately not while I was taking photos.
This was my first really long hike with the D610 and the Peak Design sling strap and it performed admirably. No discomfort at all even with the 20-35mm lens on it which weighs a total of around 3.5 pounds.
Here are the photos:

That is it for this trip. More catching up to do later.
I have quite a backlog of photos to go through from the past month or so. Here is another big update.
These were from Fort Abercrombie again this time using the Sony A6000.

Too cold out right now for a walk so I figure I’ll update on here and try to catch up. This might be a really long post with a lot of photos.
Tessa and I have been getting out more for long walks usually to Fort Abercrombie and Mill Bay Beach because they are easy to walk to and a lot safer because of the bike path along Rezanof.
These first shots are with the D610 and a mix of lenses.
Knot (D610, 45mm f/2.8P):
Rocks, Mill Bay Beach (D610, 45mm f/2.8P):

Seascape, Fort Abercrombie (D610, 20-35mm f/2.8D):
I always seem to let this site slip with updating on Facebook and Flickr. So here are some photos from recent walks.
Tessa and I have been walking to nearby parks a few times a week lately. I’ve been taking either my Sony A6000 or the Nikon D610 and their lenses with me while we wander around. It has been getting nicer and nicer here lately although still cold it hasn’t been raining too much lately. Anyway time to start off with the photos.
These photos were from our walk down to Spruce Cape. I used the Nikon D610 and the Nikkor 20-35mm f/2.8D lens for these.
Tessa on Ice
Bonus Tessa Picture:
I have a lot more to post so I’ll have to update a few more times before catching up.
Today was a Sunday hike around the trail called Swampy Acres with some friends and the dogs. It was incredibly beautiful out there just a bit cold and windy. We actually ran into a light flurry on the trail but it was just a few flakes.
I brought the Sony A6000 again with the 18-55mm lens for another try. I have found that getting used to the camera and the post processing has helped the camera really impress me.
Anyway here are the photos:
These next two are from near an old bunker along the trail.
Lastly here is a shot of Tessa this afternoon sitting in a patch of sun.
Also here is the map of the hike:
Total distance: 4.28 miDownload
Total Time: 01:51:21
Yesterday after work Tessa and I went for a walk around Fort Abercrombie again. I brought the Sony A6000 for some photos figuring I haven’t given it much use since I got my Nikon DSLR. To be honest in the few times I had used it previously I wasn’t too impressed with the results I had gotten from it but after putting in some time and effort into the processing yesterday I think it isn’t too bad.

Float in Lake Gertrude:
And another new post for me today.
Saturday morning was quite foggy and a bit wet but Tessa and I braved the mist, huge puddles, and the nasty black Kodiak mud to get out for a short walk. We ended up walking from our apartment on down along Spruce Cape RD for a little ways then turning around. We ended the fun morning trying to get Tessa washed off in the bathtub and get the mud out of her fur. I did of course lug the Nikon around and took some photos.
