Wildflower Garden

Our Alaskan Cruise ended in the seaside town of Seward, which is known as the Mural Capital of Alaska.  The town currently has 22 murals.  It was named “Mural Capital of Alaska” in 2008 when it had only 12.  I would have loved to seen all 22, but my time was limited in Seward.  You can read more about these murals here.

Glacier Bay, Alaska

The family went on an Alaskan cruise on the ship, Norwegian Sun, that traveled from Vancouver, Canada to Seward, Alaska.  If you have never been on an Alaskan cruise, you definitely need to add it to your bucket list.  We were so fortunate that the weather was clear all six days.  It was really hard to pick a photo from the 429 I took on this trip.  The views are spectacular (especially in person).  Really going to be hard to go back to work.  I took this with my Olympus TG-4 on landscape mode.  Boosted the contrast and cropped.

Young Assassin Bug

This guy is really tiny.  Had to look hard among the leaves.  This is a very young assassin bug.  Shot with my Olympus TG4 on microscope mode.  Settings were ISO800, 18mm, f4.9 and 1/400secs.  Started my processing in Adobe Lightroom (cropping etc…) then finished processing in Adobe Photoshop.  Trying to learn how to use Lightroom.  All the photography pros keep saying how Lightroom was a game changer for them.

Hanky Panky or Get a Room! or Do you mind?

So many titles to choose from.  Roaming around the yard of the house we are renovating when I stumbled upon these two little love birds. This is a photo of two air potato beetles getting it on.  At one point the bottom one looked like it was trying to knock the top one off.  Processed this photo in Lightroom.  First time using Lightroom to tweak my photos.  Opened it up in Photoshop to sharpen it some more.  Used my Olymput TG-4 on microscope mode.  The settings were iso500, 18mm, f4.9 and 1/400sec.

Stare Down

I believe this little guy is called a Click beetle.  He doesn’t look happy having a camera shoved in his face.  Oh well, I needed my weekly photo 🙂
