    We cruised out of San Francisco (under the Golden Gate Bridge, of course):
    A7ii + 40mm Classic Heliar
    On days at sea we enjoy seeing the play of water, wind, and sun.
    A7ii + 40mm Heliar
    We went on an excursion in Ketchikan that took us to George Inlet where we enjoyed the scenery and some eagles.

    A7ii + 55mm f/1.8 Sony-Zeiss
    The captain of the excursion boat routinely got the attention of some eagles and tossed food into the water to feed them. So they came close enough to the boat for me to use the 55mm lens:
    I left the blurred boat captain in the image for some perspective to show how near we were to the eagle as it swooped in for the fish. DSC01557D.

    Thanks for sharing!
    I wish I didn't get so violently seasick, I'd love to take a cruise to AK, and I bet my wife would even go with me.
