Sue --

The Yukon Tourism folks should pay you to post on rv.net! Could I ask what camera you are using? And do you use a polarizer? Please do not feel pressure to answer these questions. I understand completely if you are reluctant to reveal your secrets -- you are a professional, and each profession has to have its own techniques that are not available to the amateurs.

Thanks,

Dan

Dan, while Steve drives I point the Canon G12 out the window in various directions and push the shutter button. That little camera is amazing at capturing good shots while we move down the road.

When we're stopped, maybe hiking or sightseeing, I use a Canon 7D DSLR usually with a 24-105mm Canon lens. Sometimes switch to the 10-22mm wide angle for landscape. For getting close-up and personal with wildlife I usually use the Canon 100-400mm lens.

I have a polarizer but rarely use it. Even though it is a quality one I don't like how it can reduce the sharpness of an image. So only pull it out when shooting on/through water, but even then, rarely!

The zoom can change this

Those Dall sheep were a long way off and HIGH up on Sheep Mountain in Kluane National Park.

Up close, some of them would look like this:

Oddly enough, I've asked Yukon Tourism if there is funding available to help assist with my website expenses and its maintenance/updating. My site is completely ad free and promotes travel in Yukon. I do it because I love Yukon and want to share it with others.

BUT because I'm not a business selling packages to tourists, there is no funding. I need to be a business selling something. It isn't enough to have 4,000 monthly visitors to my website learning about Yukon's grandness!

Go figure. So I continue to keep the site as a hobby. The benefit is I get to meet a lot of great people from around the world!
