Edward, your images never cease to thrill me!  Thanks for sharing!  :D

Thanks Krob, appreciated

Lovely shot!

I almost got on the Stockholm this year, unfortunatly it didn't happen. But it is top of my list to try and do next year.

Thanks Skulker & Love the 2nd Image, the Black on Black is always a winner for me.

Spent 21 days on the "Stockholm" with my eldest Son last Year, you won't regret it, great small ship, 6 Cabins (try to get one of the four towards the stern, the 2 forward Cabins are a little pokey).

Depending on Ice Conditions you can get some amazing Polar Bear sightings in the Pack Ice, 10 Days (Their normal schedule) is probably all you want, 21 days we were getting a little Cabin Fevered, but we did get to see 16 Different Polar Bears over the 21 Days.

Make sure you take good covers for your Lenses if you aren't using Big Whites + 1Dx, had a couple of dead D800 & 5DMK III units belonging to other people during our trip (water spray damage in the Zodiac excursions mostly), I used a pair of 1Dx + 200-400f/4, 600f/4 II & 70-200f/2.8 L, no protection & no problems.

The Image precious was a Female Bear that climbed to the top of the Berg to see if she could step over onto the Ships deck, in the end I was shooting this Bear with the 70-200 @ around 100mm &  keeping an eye out for the escape route, crazy stuff.

The Walrus come up to the Zodiac & the Females with Calves try to poke a hole in the Zodiac to protect the younger ones, which have zero fear of Humans & the Zodiac, great trip, lovely old ship immaculately kept & wonderful Swedish Crew.

WELL DONE eml58!  Spot on.

Two images - focus stacked.  Only had time to take two shots as either one of the cats was moving or one of them was  looking away.

It was a good challenge though.


It was well done Menace, have to admit at times we get so wrapped up in "Getting the Image" we tend to forget about creativity, your Image made me think a little more about the patience required for that creativity.

Again, well done.

12. I would like glowing buttons like on the D4s.

The D4s has glowing buttons you say ???????????

That's it, I'm deserting to Nikon.

Depth of field :)

Yes, at f/2.8 one or the other should be in focus, definitely not both at that distance.

So stacked Images, at least two, the f/2.8 keeps the Bokeh in the background, nice, if you can get the subjects to play the Game & keep still, well done Menace.

The attached was shot at f/5.6 with the 200-400, the Big Guy in the background wasn't Happy so getting them together long enough for stacked shots wasn't an option.

I use a couple of these Domke Bags when I'm not looking to carry the Kitchen Sink.

I have the J2 Canvas version but I find the J1 & J3 Ballistic Nylon works better.


The J3 seems about what you may be looking for, but they have a number of larger sizes that you may grow into.

These were taken one cloudy morning on a canoe trip below Squaretop Mountain in the Wind River Range of Wyoming between the two Green River Lakes.

Lovely Image, especially the first, reminds me of scenes from The Hobbit.

400mm, f2.8, ISO500, 1/1000

Yep, only time I feel for having sold the 400, when i see something like this shot @ f2.8.

Lovely shot Menace, I see this often as well, Predators drooling while looking at Photographers    :).

But what an amazingly Beautiful Animal, in my view about the only thing on the Planet more Beautiful than a Leopard.

Sorry I was a bit unclear on that to begin with. I hope you didn't break anything ...

No problem Eldar, I have an Engineering Background, if a large Hammer & a Crowbar don't get it to fit, maybe it wasn't meant to fit, it didn't fit, I now have the 6D version & it fits the 5DMKIII like a glove, with some persuasion, but it fits, so thanks for the heads up.

Just weird that Canon make interchangeable screens for the 1Dx & 6D but left out the 5DMK III.

My inspiration for photography

Very Cute, and they actually get better, mine are 20 & 15 now, they actually talk & make sense as well, mostly, sort of.

NB!! It is the Eg-S (6D version) that works on the 5DIII, not Ec-S!

Ahhh!! that explains why I couldn't force my Ec-s into the 5DMK III cavity.

Will order the Eg-s now & try that.

I have now used it both on the 1DX and 5DIII with Ec-S screens (not meant to be on the 5DIII, but it fits with a little push and a steady hand). Focusing was a lot easier than I had expected and in reasonably good light I hit it almost every time.

Good info Eldar, need to try that, wasn't aware it would fit, but if a gentle nudge does the trick it allows for more use of the 5DMK III

All excellent, in particular like the first two, the all white surrounds in the first Image really, well done GMC.

Lovely Country as well.
