Do you see the similarities between my hand and a map of Alaska?
After spending nearly two weeks there this summer where our tour guide on the land portion of our trip pointed out that you can sort of make the shape of Alaska with your right hand, I came to realize that Alaska is best viewed with the naked eye. Recently I was reading this post by Evelyn Hannon, aka @Journeywoman on Twitter, and under the last picture on the first page, Evelyn had noticed a woman viewing the magnificence of The Hermitage in St. Petersburg through the lens of her camera. Her comment made me think back to our recent trip through Alaska. I know first hand how wonderful Alaska is and that you just want to capture all of its beauty with your camera.
You will see things truly unique to Alaska that defy description and jog the imagination.
You could spend all of your time during a whale watching excursion gazing through the camera lens just trying to capture humpback whales as they come to the surface.
However, if you don’t put down the camera once in awhile and notice that every 10 seconds, you will miss a new postcard view appearing before your eyes. If you only spend your time in Alaska with your eye at a LCD display or looking through the viewfinder, I can promise you will miss something wonderful. The choice is yours; do you want to take all of Alaska in or do you want to end up looking at the backside of a bear?
Alaska is best viewed with the naked eye. Pictures are certainly okay to help jog your memory, but be sure to put down the camera once in awhile and just live in the moment. When you are ready to view Alaska with your naked eye, please allow me to plan your perfect Alaska cruise vacation.
