Here we go, the next installment of my Great Bear Rainforest adventure. For those of you who missed it, the rainforest is located on Canada’s west coast (British Columbia) between the southern tip of Alaska and the north end of Vancouver Island. It is the largest area of intact temperate rainforest left on earth. I spent nine nights on a 54-foot sailboat, sailing from Ketchikan, Alaska to Bella Bella, British Columbia.
I took over 4000 photos on the trip. The scenery and wildlife were breathtaking, and I’m having a difficult time narrowing it down to a few photos to share with you. The plan was to do one post per day of the journey. But I’ve found myself unable choose the farther into the rainforest we go. So more posts, it is! As you can see, I played with my landscape lens quite a bit this day. I learned that eagles in flight are difficult to photograph. As are seals when you’re on a moving boat. There are more chances in the days to come to get better at both.
