One-Year Ago (06-January-2016) — Pacific Ocean

Day 2 of 102. Semester at Sea, Spring 2016 Voyage. Crossing the Pacific Ocean from Mexico to Hawaii.

This was our first full day at sea. I woke at 05:30. Both the moon and Venus were visible before sunrise. The seas were calmer than during the night. I was not impacted, but I know some of the folks were sea-sick. Like my previous Semester at Sea voyages (six Enrichment, two Semester), I made it a goal to take pictures at dawn, sunrise, sunset, and dusk on as many days as possible. It did mean missing a lot of sleep, but there is something special about sunrise and sunset at sea. I hope you enjoy some of these images over the next 100+ days. The first day at sea was mainly orientation sessions, and time for those that have not been to sea before to get used to the motion on the ship. Classes started on the next day. Latter in the afternoon while walking around the ship, I found one of the students working on watercolor painting in the late afternoon sun.

One-Year Ago (05-January-2016) — Mexico

Day 01 of 102. Semester at Sea, Spring 2016 Voyage. Ensenada, Mexico.

We rode a bus from San Diego, California to Ensenada, Mexico to board the M/V World Odyssey. Even though the ship had been docked in San Diego to disembark the Fall 2015 students, there is a federal law that prevents non-US registered ships from traveling between US ports. It was a grey and rainy day. We all had to get off the bus to go through immigration in Mexico. After arriving at the cruise terminal in Ensenada, went through the check-in where they made sure we had our passport and yellow-fever vaccination card. The luggage was all inspected for contraband, and finally we were allowed to board the ship. Once on the ship we got our room key, and then had several hours to investigate the public areas that would become home for the next 102 days. After everyone was onboard, we went through the first of several mandatory lifeboat/evacuation drills. Once that was completed, we departed for Hilo, Hawaii.

One-Year Ago (04-January-2016) — California

Day 0 of 102. Semester at Sea Spring 2016 Voyage. San Diego, California.

This was the first view that the Troll family had of the M/V World Odyssey. The new ship that Semester at Sea is using for its voyages. Beginning January 5th, 2016 this was my home along with many students, faculty, staff, families, and other Life Long Learners for the Spring 2016 Semester Voyage. The ship traveled around the world departing from Ensenada, Mexico; with stops in Hilo, Hawaii USA; Yokohama, Japan; Kobe, Japan; Shanghai, China; Hong Kong, China; Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam; Rangoon, Burma; Cochin, India; Port Louis, Mauritius; Cape Town, South Africa; Takoradi, Ghana; Tema, Accra, Ghana; Casablanca, Morocco; and ending in Southampton, England. Somehow during the voyage and field trips, I managed to take over 300K images — many in countries I never visited before. Stay tuned as I post images from each day of the voyage.

Two Months Ago Today — Departing Saint Petersburg, Russia.

While reviewing images I came upon this image I took when we were departing Saint Petersburg. It was a ship, Dimtry Varvarian docked along the long port. When I zoomed in during post processing found some interesting subjects.

<em><strong>Happy New Year Everyone.</strong><em>

Let’s see if I can get back to posting something new to my “Image of the Day Photoblog” each and everyday. Last year I traveled a bit (or should I say a lot), and as a result fell back to just having my Google+ posts reposted on the Photoblog. I began the year in January with a quick road trip to Florida to visit family and then some time at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. At the end of January, I flew to Bergen, Norway and then embarked on a voyage on the Hurtigruten M/V Nordkapp from Bergen to Kirkenes and then back to Bergen. On the return voyage I stopped in Tromsø for a week to meet up with some friends to experience and photograph the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights). In April, I went back to Florida to join my parents for an extended Semester at Sea Spring Enrichment Voyage on the M/V Explorer. We flew from Tampa to Barcelona (via Gatwick in England). Over the next 52 days we visited 19 countries (Spain, Monaco, Italy, Spain, Gibraltar, Morocco, Portugal, Belgium, Netherlands, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Ireland, England, Norway, Latvia, Russia, Sweden, Denmark, and Germany). I must have been getting board, so at the end of July into August decided to spend 10 days in Iceland to attend a Nikonians Photo Safari with Mike Hagen and Tim Vollmer. In September, I started my annual “Gone to See America” 27 day road trip. This year I started on a northern route (New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Michigan). I spent some time in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, then continued west (Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, and Colorado). While in Colorado, I spent in and around Buena Vista for a Colorado Photo Safari with Jason Odell. We were supposed to have spent the time in Rocky Mountain National Park, but had to change the location due to the severe flooding along the Front Range in Colorado. I then continued west and south (Utah and Arizona) to join up for a week with the Nikonians ANPAT-13 (Annual Nikonians Photo Adventure Trip) in Arizona. Due to the Government shutdown, we were not able to visit many of the planned locations in the National Parks or National Forests. On the day I departed the Nikonians group, I was fortunate to travel through Grand Canyon National Park. The park was re-opened that day after the Governor of Arizona agreed to pay for basic operations until the Government shutdown was resolved. I then spent a couple of days in New Mexico, but unfortunately White Sands and Carlsbad Caverns National Parks were still closed. Guadalupe Mountain and Big Bend National Parks in Texas were also closed, so decided to hightail it back home (Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey). Since returning home, I have been spending a lot of time going through my images, and upgrading the computer server and storage space for the images. In early December, I spent four days in Philadelphia attending workshops with Steve Simon (Nikon D4, D800, and the Passionate Photographer). In all I took nearly 300K images during the year, which is double the number I took in 2012. New photography equipment for 2013 included a Nikon Df camera body, a 58 mm f/1.4G lens, a 70-200 mm f/4 VR lens and two lenses for the Nikon 1 bodies – a 18.5 mm f/1.8 and 32 mm f/1.2 lens.

I really wanted to sign up for the Semester at Sea Spring 2014 round the world voyage but the stars were not aligned and I didn’t get my act together in time. The round the world Semester at Sea voyage will have to wait until 2016, since I have already committed to another trip to Patagonia with Thom Hogan in the spring of 2015. Other trips for 2014 include a Birding Photo Safari in Texas with Jason Odell and the Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque with Winston Hall. I’ve not decided yet on either the Semester at Sea Spring 2014 Enrichment voyage (includes Iceland) and/or the Semester at Sea Summer 2014 voyage (Europe).

Semester at Sea Spring 2013 Enrichment Voyage

I am back home after an extended voyage on the Semester at Sea M/V Explorer. Over 52 days the Spring 2013 Enrichment Voyage visited 19 countries (Spain, Monaco, Italy, Spain, Gibraltar, Morocco, Portugal, Belgium, Netherlands, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Ireland, England, Norway, Latvia, Russia, Sweden, Denmark, and Germany). The Garmin GPS that I carried recorded 24539 miles (10068 miles by air, 9216 miles at sea, 2457 miles by car, 1800 miles by bus, 819 miles by train, 46 miles by ferry, and 133 miles by foot). Using five cameras (including my smart phone) I took over 60K images taking up almost all of a 1.5 TB external hard drive. Internet access on the ship was slow so I didn’t make many posts. I plan to go back and post images from the trip over the next few days and weeks.

Olso. Semester at Sea Spring 2013 Enrichment Voyage Day 32.

It had been misting and raining for several hours before sailing into Oslo Harbor. The rain was heavy enough at one point for there to be standing water on the decks. It gets light very early this far north, but it was overcast so I didn’t see the sun rise at 04:13 AM. The mist and fog prevented us from seeing much of the channel and islands as we got close to Oslo. We left the ship as soon as the Norwegian Customs and Immigration officials cleared the ship. Our first goal was getting an Oslo Pass (good for museums, bus, tram, train, and ferry). The nearest tourist office at the port terminal was closed. We were told that it would open at 11:00 AM as soon as a larger 4000 passenger ship arrived — I guess that the M/V Explorer with 750 passengers isn’t a large enough ship to rate. The next tourist office was a 15 minute walk, just behind City Hall. This one was open, and we were lucky we arrived early. After taking a number you wait for the lighted sign to indicate your turn to see a tourist representative. In addition to getting the Oslo pass, we got a booklet, maps, and directions. They also exchange currency (but don’t have an ATM) and will make reservations hotels and trips. By the time we left, the tourist office was filled with 40+ folks waiting to see a tourist representative.

Next we walked to the ferry terminal to take Ferry 92 to Bygøoynes. The first stop on the Ferry is within walking distance to the Norwegian Folk Museum (Norsk Folkemuseum) and the Viking Ship Museum. After visiting the Viking Ship Museum we walked to the cluster of the Kon-Tiki, Polar Ship Fram, and Norwegian Maritime Museums. This was a longer walk than expected, and after figured out that we could have taken the ferry to the 2nd stop, or take Bus 30 to get these Museums. The Oslo Pass quickly paid for itself by providing free admission to the Museums. An interesting note about the Fram Museum is that the primary language for all of the displays are in English.

The next goal was Vigeland Sculpture Park. To get there we took Bus 30 to Olav Kyrres plass, and transferred to Bus 20. Two stops latter we arrived at the Park. The morning rain ended and the sky started to clear. There were six Tourist and School buses in the parking lot at the entrance, but not too many people for a 73 acre park. The trees were green with fresh spring leaves, and tulips were in bloom. A large part of the gardens had newly planted rose plants (not yet in bloom). In addition to tourists visiting the park, there were lots of locals including several groups of school children out to enjoy the sun. For this segment of the trip, I am focusing on taking pictures with prime lenses. With the sun shining through, I was able to get some sunburst images with the sculptures. A great future project will be to photograph the sculptures in all seasons and weather conditions. Yes, I want to return.

To get back to the ship we went to the bus stop. An electronic sign at the bus stop indicated it would be a 25-30 minute wait for Bus 12. Across the street was a stop for Tram 12 with trams running every 5-10 minutes. As soon as we got across the street, the tram arrived. A short time later we were back at the City Hall. All in all, a great day in Oslo.

Netherlands Coast Guard Rescue Helicopter. Semester at Sea, Spring 2013 Enrichment Voyage. Day 30.

The Netherlands Coast Guard Rescue Helicopter (G-BIMU, Stac Pollaidh) hovered off the Semester at Sea M/V Explorer as we traveled along the coast of Netherlands on our way to Oslo, Norway. The helicopter did an amazing job of staying stationary right next to our ship. They wanted to do a drill, but had to leave as they were running low on fuel. I liked the expression on the pilot and co-pilots faces.

Sunset on the English Channel. Semester at Sea Spring 2013 Enrichment Voyage Day 28.

Today was a day at sea aboard the M/V Explorer as we traveled from Dublin, Ireland to Dover, United Kingdom. Most of my time was spent getting images ready for the Ultimate Travel Photography Workshop IV final show. Spencer compiled all of the selected images from the workshop participants for the segment 2 final show and added appropriate music. The theme for the show was Street Photography and Travel Photography. After presentation of the show to the ship’s passengers in the Union, I quickly went to deck 7 to see if the sunset was going to be interesting. The clouds were developing an intense orange color, but due to high winds, I was unable to get outside to take images. I decided to run down to my cabin to pick up the Nikon D4 camera body and the 80-400 mm VRII lens. As soon as I got up to deck 7 at the rear of the ship, I could see a cargo ship may pass directly between us and the cargo ship. One nice thing about the D4 camera body and new XQD memory card is the ability to take many more images before the buffer fills up. The following is an image taken just as the cargo ship passed between us and the setting sun

Capoeira Performance in Parc de Bercy

To end a great two day visit to Paris, I went on an impromptu Photowalk in Parc de Bercy with photographer and friend Thomas Paris. I had been on photography trips before with Thomas in Patagonia (Photo Workshop in 2010 with Thom Hogan) and most recently Tromsø, Norway earlier this year chasing the Northern Lights. In his spare time Thomas Paris leads Photowalks in Paris. I was staying at the Pullman Bercy Hotel – a modern hotel in Paris that caters to foreign tourists. We walked to the local Parc de Bercy. Spring had arrived in Paris. The trees were green, and flowers in bloom. Lots of locals with families were walking through the park enjoying the warm late afternoon sunshine. The park was bigger than I thought. We passed through a gate that separated an area only opened during the day and heard some drum music and soon found a group sitting in a circle watching a man and woman doing what looked like slow-motion martial arts moves choreographed to the music. I had read about Brazilian Capoeira before, but never seen it in person. The following images were taken while watching the performance. Notice at least one other photographer working the performance.
