Gone to See Europe 2014. Day 0: Stockholm, Sweden.
I arrived in Stockholm a day before embarking on the Semester at Sea Spring Enrichment Voyage. I joined fellow photographer Albert for a walkabout in the city. We came upon a group of musicians performing in a square. The accordion player thought he found his doppelganger… Really, It is not me. Image taken with a Leica X2 camera (ISO 400, 24 mm, f/11, 1/640 sec). Raw image processed with Capture One Pro, Focus Magic, and Photoshop CC.
As I was walking to my car from the Boulder Marriott Residence Inn I saw this brown bird hunting insects. I didn’t recognize it, and had to look it up in my “National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Birds”. It is a Northern Flicker which is a woodpecker. Image taken with a Nikon D2xs camera and 70-200 mm f/2.8 VR lens (ISO 400, 280 mm, f/4, 1/50 sec).
Gone to See Europe. Semester at Sea Spring 2013 Enrichment Voyage on the MV Explorer. Day 31: At Sea.
Northern Gannet Flying Against a Clear Blue Sky. From the deck of the M/V Explorer crossing the North Sea between Dover and Oslo. I don’t know why it is flying with one foot down. From the deck of the MV Explorer on the North Sea between Dover and Oslo. Image taken with a Nikon D4 camera and 80-400 VR II lens (ISO 180, 400 mm, f/5.6, 1/400 sec).
