I did not have my pro DSLR camera gear with me, but I did have the most recent camera added to my collection, the Canon G3X. I purchased this camera for my extreme wilderness trekking, when weight reduction is important enough for me to leave the heavy gear behind. I’ve been testing it here and there, and so far it performs amazingly well. I will really put it to the test on a 100 mile wilderness trek through the Gates of the Arctic National Park over the next week. I’ll have some photos to share from that journey in a few weeks.
Summer is here in Alaska! In just a few weeks, the solstice will mark the longest day of the year, and believe it or not, we start losing daylight following that. To really see the beauty of the “evening” light, it will require a late night indeed. I was traveling through the Alaska Range last week during the midnight hours and the dappled light and dramatic clouds made some wonderful views.
