Kite Boarding in Alaska*

or should I say- *Photographing Kite Boarding (or Kite Surfing) in Alaska.

Sure looks exciting.

I learned the difference between a WET suit and a DRY suit.

Kite boarders were in both types, the dry suit worn over clothes and keeping you warm and dry.

The beach is in Homer, Alaska on the Spit. (A geographical landform)

Photographing these adventurous sports was enough for me. I was in a sweatshirt jacket and hat and did not get wet.  The wind was strong that day as you can see by the waves. I knew I should have lugged my 7-200 lens on vacation.  These are taken with a 24-70mm.

Alaska Railroad Conductor

Meet Will H.  Our conductor on the train ride from Denali to Anchorage. Army veteran. They even slowed the train so we could photograph Denali and two other mountain ranges which were all completely visible on a beautiful clear day.

Although we are back in NYC and I like to keep the blog in RT, now that computer access/internet is available, I want to post some photos I had in my real camera not iPhone.
