Perched Golden Eagle in the National Elk Refuge near Jackson

Here is another shot telling.  The feet tell me that he is most likely a Golden Eagle.  What do you think?  Golden or Juvenile Bald Eagle?

I believe this is a juvenile bald eagle.  The beak/ bill is larger and more characteristic of a bald eagle, the feathering does not go all the way down the leg as shown in the second pic, and the wing markings also look like a young bald eagle.  Either way they are neat pics- I like the second one where it likes like he is relaxed and stretching.

Specs and early reviews of the new Fuji X-T1 look very promising.  I got a chance to play with this camera at a local store.  The camera is well built with weather sealing and the EVF is nice.  It is small, but not too small.  Attach the 18-55 fuji kit lens, which is great by all reviews, and you would have a great walk around set up.

Red Rock Canyon City Park, Colorado Springs, Colorado

I love this shot.  The contrast of the orange rock and frost on the trees is beautiful.

Fuji x100 or x100s. You can hike around all you want without feeling any weight on you.

Ok. Thanks.  I will look into it

Well, this is the year I turn the big 4-0.  Instead of buying a car or getting a large tattoo, my family and I are taking a trip to Alaska.  For the trip we plan to see wildlife, big and small, as well as plenty of beautiful landscapes.  I am using this trip as an excuse to get some more gear and was hoping to get some thoughts from others out there in a similar situation, ie, buying gear for a big trip when you have a good excuse :)  Specifically I would like to purchase a back-up camera.  In general, any thoughts about travel and photography in Alaska are also welcome.  We plan to spend time from Seward and Denali for about 10 days in August. 

As of now, I plan to take a 5D MkIII with a 24mm TSE, 40mm pancake for hiking, 100mm L macro, and a 300mm f/2.8 with extenders - already have a good tripod and backpack.  I am considering the 6D or Sony A7 as a second camera option.  I definitely want a camera I can use without purchasing new lenses. Thanks.

How does the autofocus of the Tamron compare to the Canon 300mm/2.8 II with 2xTCIII?

Thanks for posting

Great post Dustin.  I always enjoy your work.

Thanks to others for correcting me.
Yorgasor- it would be neat to see the Teton panorama after you reprocess it.

Did you use a slide and find the nodal point of the lens at the focal length used?  If not, your problem is likely from parallax.   Search nodal point determination for panoramas on the web- there are plenty of instructional articles and videos.  Really Right Stuff is one company that sells the necessary components.

Awesome display of lens technology:

It reminds me to never take the work that goes into our gear for granted.
