Just a couple. Still trying to adjust my 'eye' for nature pictures that involve water and green...

hmm... possibly reverting color wise...

Actually, those pics could be from anywhere along an ocean coastline.

Okay, a bit more Alaskan. Humpbacks having fun.

This whale was not sounding, but rather 'tail slapping'...

...and then breaching.

Nice stream with a series of small waterfalls along side a trail I like to hike...

Wagging and jumping, just like an oversized dog.

the second pic seems to have some sort of animal track... just below center left

It does, but I'm pretty sure that's just the way the piece of kelp dried up.

Here's a tiny limpid (in Hawaii, they are called Opihi) on a clam shell...

The Opihi are good enough to eat raw, especially in a survival situation. Or a beach party situation, washed down with beer.

I liked the way these reddish rocks shine when they get wet...

Brian,

Keep 'em coming. It's been far too long you lazy bugger! <G>

Re. that first foto - seems that wherever you go, you have to watch out for anemome!

Yep. Trying to get a sense of the water motion without losing sharpness in the rest of the image. Was using the Canon 7D with a Canon 10-22mm wide angle lens. No IS on that lens, and I was breathing hard as it's quite the steep climb right there. ;) Plus where the stream enters the picture at the top right was rather dark, especially compared to the bright sunlight on both sides of it.

does your camera do multi exposure HDR overlays in camera? That can be a fun, interesting, and useful tool. . .

It's not labeled HDR, but I can set up bracketing I think, where it will take three images, one correct, one under-exposed, and one over-exposed, then I combine them with software. I believe I can adjust the amount of under/over exposure too.
