Peter-West-Carey-Alaska2015-0617-0529-2

Location: Off of Baker Island, Alaska, USA, North America

Description: I love that the new Canon 7D Mark II has GPS built in. It drains the batteries faster but there are times when that is okay. Like when you are in a boat and have room for extra batteries. And it helps me remember just where all my outdoor images where shot, so I can see them on a map when I return. I can also adjust how often it updates which helps manage battery drain but still acquire location.

These fine birds were shot while I was out teaching photography and fishing with the Waterfall Resort Summer Solstice Photography Workshop. When the sun is out in Alaska, there are photos everywhere you look!

For a while I am going to ask for your assistance in helping those in Nepal rebuild their lives. Average citizens don’t have insurance and I would not trust the inept and corrupt government to help where it is needed most.

I am going to focus on two non-profits I know have ties in the country (read: employees with families who understand where funds can help the most) for my pleas for assistance.

The first is Planeterra, a non-profit run by G Adventures. The second is the Paldorje Sherpa Foundation run by Sherpa Adventure Gear. Both of these charities are run by their parent company, who covers all their overhead so that 100% of donations go to those in need. Both of these companies do the right thing and care for the people of Nepal greatly. Both have funds set up specifically to help quake victims.

Please consider donating today.

Location: Waipio Valley, Hawai’i (The Big Island), Hawaii, USA

Description: The valleys on the Hawaiian Islands have a seemingly endless supply of waterfalls. Some of the longest waterfalls, when measured as total drop from top to bottom, live here and resemble this example from the boyhood home of King Kamehameha I in Waipio Valley.

Photo Of The Day – Inside Out Of The Ferry http://thecareyadventures.com/blog/photo-of-the-day-inside-out-of-the-ferry/ http://thecareyadventures.com/blog/photo-of-the-day-inside-out-of-the-ferry/#comments Wed, 24 Jun 2015 22:32:33 +0000 http://thecareyadventures.com/blog/?p=15859 Continue Reading →]]> Title: Inside Out Of The Ferry

Peter-West-Carey-Travel2015-0610-9828

Location: Between Mukilteo and Clinton, Washington, USA, North America

Description: For the tech minded out there, I recently switched to a new Canon 7D Mark II from my old Canon 7D (which is now a nice backup and wide angle camera as I only own two lenses). Eager to test out the new camera, I shot the image you see above to test its dynamic range.

Before the camera arrived I dove into the normal comparison websites and while their information is helpful, it never really does it for me. I want to shoot and see what the camera can do.

I don’t know what the actual dynamic range of this camera is and numerically, I don’t care. I care what it looks like and to find its limits so I can work within them. That’s the reason for this inside/outside shot taken from one ferry boat looking at another. It works for me (with a little editing, to be expected) and I am happy as pie with the canon 7D Mark II!
