Just another day in the paradise that is Alaska. Glacier Bay, the home of humpback whales, sea otters, puffins, glaciers, and some of the world's most dramatic mountain scenery is a photographer's dream come true.
This scene was shot from our private chartered boat on a bright sunny day when the Bay was calm. The clouds were clinging to the mountaintops, and a sense of peace was all around us.
In spite of the brightness of the day, the original RAW image looked flat and colorless. That is a common problem with digital images. As I have said so many times, Lightroom came to the rescue. Here is the RAW image before any work was done on it.
After a couple of minutes using Lightroom, the image came to life. I have been asked many times if other software can do the same thing as Lightroom. So far I have not found anything that works as well, as easily, or as quickly as Lightroom.
If this looks like a place you would like to visit and photograph, come with me to Glacier Bay Alaska in August. You can find details on the Awake The Light website here
