Jeez time to play some more catch up on the blog.
Here are some more photos from the last week.
This is the beach at the end of the Anton Larsen trail. Tessa and I made the hike and were pretty tired by this point. The whole trail has matting down on it so it is fairly easy to hike but Tessa didn’t like the matting.
I made a trip up to the top of Pillar Mountain for sunset last week. This was an attempt to get the wind farm in motion while I was taking pictures. I used my neutral density filter and did a multiple exposure HDR merge to get this result.
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.
Some more photos from recent walks with Tessa.
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.
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:
Also here is the map of the hike:

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.
Taking advantage of any decent weather here in Kodiak is paramount to fighting cabin fever I guess. Yesterday Tessa and I went on a long hike with some friends and their dogs along the trail known as Burma Road. It was a pretty nice trail and fairly scenic. The trail goes in between Old Women’s Mountain and Barometer Mountain for around 6.5 miles. We had a nice low cloud deck which made for some awesome landscape photos of the mountains.
I haven’t done this in a while so here is the GPS track of the hike:
