Hubbard Glacier with the 10,000’ Mt. Seattle breaking thru the clouds in the background. Shot while approaching the glacier from a good distance away, in August of 2012. I wanted to get a shot that would highlight the glacier before the light and clouds changed. The shot was not possible with my normal landscape setup, a full frame with a 24-70 lens, so I switched to my D300’s that I had on deck with my long lens and converter on it, just incase we encountered any whales. Having a longer zoom lens on a camera with a 1.5x crop factor along with a converter allowed me to frame the scene the way I wanted to and when I needed it. By the time we reached the glacier the scene had changed considerably so I’m glad I had my “wildlife setup” on hand.
- Gear: Nikon D300s w/70-200mm Lens & 1.4x ext.
