I've finally posted my pictures from Alaska to my SmugMug:
There is a lot to be seen there! And there would have been much more if we didn't get that much rain on most of the cities we stopped at. It's hard to take pictures and, at the same time, try to keep the lens dry.
Talking about lenses, I bought new lenses for this trip: Canon EF-S 18-200mm f:3.5-5.6 IS. Great all-purpose lens! Good speed, enough zoom for most things (yes, you won't see amazing whale or wildlife pictures). I didn't have a lot of low lighting conditions to talk about its performance then. Yes, it was raining often, but never too dark.
